    Yeah, if they're both joined via likewise-open you should be ok. I know winbind uses the last 4 digits of the user's sid in AD so likewise probably does the same, meaning that uids and gids they'll be the same from all machines.

    Sorry to open a slightly old thread, but I have not been using this site for a while until recently.

    I have documented how to join Ubuntu 10.04 to AD network (2003 forest functional level). I was having issues with likewise so did it via samba and winbind. We got home drive mappings fine and we did not have to prefix logins with a domain name. I was getting some strange issues with pam authorisation orders that I think could be related to me not using Likewise. Need to do more testing on this, as the documentation is some what contradictory on what to do

    Looking for feedback from others on whether likewise or samba/windbind is the best method to join Ubuntu 10.04 to AD. ALso has anyone tested this working on 2008r2 forest functional level?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    I had problems getting our LTSP server to authenticate against Active Directory (Server 2008) - this post is most relevant:

    Configuring Samba

    There is now also Centrify DirectControl Express to integrate *nix systems with AD. Haven't tested it, but have tested the non-free version and was very impressed.
