In the May 2005 issue
of Linux Journal, Joe Ruffolo and Ron Terry
wrote about their project to connect Mountainland Applied Technology
College's several campuses while also moving to open-source software.
Their article, "Linux in the Classroom: an Experience with Linux and
Open-Source Software in and Educational Environment", follows the
school's evolving technological infrastructure over a five-year period.
Here, Joe offers a reading list of good sources for more detailed
information on Samba, OpenLDAP and the other software they are
Over the past several years, much of what Ron and I have done in integrating
Linux into the educational environment has been accomplished through trial and error. This
is due partially to the maturity of the products available under Linux and
partially to the lack of HOWTO documents available for what we were trying
to accomplish. Fortunately, more and clearer documentation now is available.
Below is a reading list that you may find interesting and useful. Specifically,
the HOWTO articles that describe using Samba as a primary domain controller (PDC)
in a mixed Linux and Windows environment and using OpenLDAP for single sign-on
should prove useful.
Ron and I are assembling some of our notes and modified HOWTO documents,
and they are available at the link at the end of this list.
Samba-OpenLDAP HOWTO: this document explains how to set up and use a
Linux departmental server with Samba and OpenLDAP to replace an existing Microsoft
Windows domain controller server, as well as how to provide central authentication
services and file and print sharing for Microsoft Windows and UNIX clients.
(v.3) PDC LDAP howto: a guide from the University of Navarra on
how to use Samba and OpenLDAP.
