I Haven’t Died….
Or anything… It’s just been busy, really busy at work. But we have gotten:
- Fedora 7 and CentOS 5 to authenticate against Active Directory
- A CentOS 5 linux server to serve up home directories (including roving profiles) to Linux, Unix, and Windows clients with AD Kerberos
- Sun Ray Server Software (running Sun Ray thin clients) on CentOS 5 working with AD and Linux NFS home directories
And you know what? CentOS 5, serving NFS home directories off of a SATA array, is between 6 and 20 times faster than our (decent) Solaris SPARC servers with fibre channel array using Solaris 10. They were here before I was, but they’re only like 10 months old. They should be *FASTER* than Linux.
