Novell Domain Services for Windows (DSfW) creates seamless cross-authentication capabilities between Windows or Active Directory and Novell OES or eDirectory servers.
With DSfW, eDirectory users can use familiar Windows desktop operations to access file services regardless of the platform or the operating system where the service resides.
When configuring Linux User Management on a DSfW tree, YaST does not prompt for user credentials. It takes the configuration parameters from the DSfW configuration.
The UNIX Config object and the UNIX Workstation objects in an FRD are created under ou=novell, $domain.
For child domains, the UNIX Config object and the UNIX Workstation objects are created under ou=novell, $child_domain.
For name-mapped configurations YaST modifies the existing UNIX Config object in the tree if the eDirectory tree is already enabled for Linux User Management.
