Chapter 12. Microsoft Windows Interoperability

Chapter 12. Microsoft Windows Interoperability

One of the advantages of standard technology like LDAP is the opportunity it creates for dissimilar operating environments to interoperate. The business computing landscape is composed of heterogeneous systems, since no single computing architecture addresses all computing needs. These systems include UNIX-based servers and workstations and Microsoft Windows clients and servers. Each of these systems maintains its own data store, which is sometimes duplicated to enable users to access resources on either system.

This chapter focuses on how Solaris-based systems can share information with Windows-based systems by deploying LDAP technology. The first part of this chapter looks at how the user account data can be synchronized between a Windows NT server and a Solaris server running the iPlanet Directory Server. The second part of the chapter examines the directory services in Microsoft's newest operating system, Windows 2000, and how they can interact with Solaris directory services.
