The situation is that I manage a bunch of websites & web services, all with their own separate user accounts. It would be useful to unify all these logins. The problem is that the software infrastructure necessary to support unified logins is way beyond my capabilities. Is there a suitable technology shortcut or a way I can cheaply buy such a service?

Help this Unix guy understand Windows domains, security and file sharing. I'm a software tester who's mostly worked with unix systems and unix file systems but now I've got to develop and execute a test plan for file sharing between Windows clients and samba servers running within Windows domains of various configurations. What are some good relatively quick learning resources that can get me up to speed? [more inside]

I'm curious as to what are the current "best practices" when it comes to centralized administration of a network of Unix (primarily Linux, but not necessarily so) machines? Essentially, what is the equivalent of Active Directory for a network with one or more Unix hosts? The immediate answer I come up with would be something like OpenLDAP plus PAM but what I'm looking for is the suite of tools (GUI and CLI apps) for managing the directory, deploying software, centralizing sign-on and security, managing printers, etc. In a perfect world, I would like to centralize administration of Windows, Unix, and OS X machines via a single directory service, though I imagine such a solution would be expensive and/or cumbersome if it even existed. Or is this something Samba 4 will do?
I recently lost a raid array on a ubuntu 8.04 server forcing me to rebuild it from scratch and/or restore data from backup. (I have copies of /var, /etc, and /home) The problem is I can't seem to rebuild the server so that it works exactly the way it did before, this is killing me!! (fyi... I inherited this system). My specific problem seems to be with Samba. I'm looking for help in two different ways... help 1) either figure out how to restore this system with what I've got backed up. Or fix samba so it works.

Anyone had any success using Apple's portable home directory feature without OS X server or a linux server?
I've read this, this, this and a bunch of other sites. I've got a Mac Pro and a Powerbook I'd like to share home directories over, but I'd rather not purchase OS X Server or get a small machine up and running Linux to deal with authentication (LDAP). Anyone authenticate locally, but still use the portable home directories? Alternatively, anyone just unison their entire /user/ directory? Thanks!

I'm looking for a great end-user web-based LDAP interface. Something like GOsa or simpler, but that will run on OSX. For scale LDAP Admin is too low level. Thanks!
I am looking for information on setting LDAP based netgroups for a fedora core multi-user environment. We are currently using a listfile setup, but would like to migrate to LDAP. I have a couple of books and searched all over google, but have not found a good tutorial to do this. Nate
