I am looking for options for authenticating some solaris users from Active directory. These are standard developer type users that needs group access to some resources on the server. I currently run SUN directory server 7.3 in my environment and use ldap_client on the clients for authentication. Could I somehow tie this configuration into Active Directory or is there a better (more native) way? I've come across this great article using Kerberos (http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/features/articles/kerberos_s10.jsp) however the author suggest it should not be used in a production environment which I will eventually need it to exist.
