== Centrify DirectControl for Samba ==
| type = important
The Centrify DirectControl suite seamlessly integrates UNIX, Linux, Mac, Java and web platforms with Microsoft Active Directory's identity, access and policy management services. DirectControl extends Active Directory to allow customers to centralize UNIX / Linux user and group properties and associate these properties with Active Directory accounts.
| text = The utilities listed on this page are neither part of Samba nor officially supported by Samba. If you need support for these applications, please see their web sites for further details.
DirectControl for Samba is now available. This solution allows Samba to store all user and group information centrally in Active Directory and enables new access management capabilities for Samba servers through the DirectControl Zones technology. Other features include full Active Directory group support and additional capabilities for secure cross domain single sign-on.

== AVA-SBS ==
AVA SBS is an easy to use installer for SAMBA, Open-Xchange and other freely available open source tools, to create a easy to use MS SBS replacement.
Included is AVA-ADM a the web based administration tool.
*Operating System: All POSIX (Linux/BSD/UNIX-like OSes)
*License: GNU General Public License (GPL)
* Available for: Centos and SuSE LINUX SLES9 SP3
*AVA-SBS is a simple easy to use installer / admin tool for a couple of popular open source projects that are very difficult to set up. Here is a list of what you get when you install AVA-SBS
*2. OpenLDAP
*3. Open-Xchange
*4. Postfix
*5. Cyrus IMAP
*6. Spam Assassin
*7. ClamAV (for SuSE LINUX SLES9 Bitdefender)
*8. Webmin
*9. Bind
*10. AVA-ADM
here is a brief description of what each one is.
SAMBA PDC – As most of you know when configured as a PDC Samba basically becomes a Primary NT Domain Controller. When authenticated to a directory service such OpenLDAP It becomes something the very much resembles Active Directory. Samba setup with ldap is an advanced project that is difficult to do.
OpenLDAP – OpenLDAP is the standard open source LDAP directory server installed with most distribution's.
Open-Xchange – Open-Xchange formally known as SUSE Openexchange or SLOX is a MS exchange replacement that offers shared calendaring contacts and tasks. Open-Xchange also uses OpenLdAP as its back end directory server. Open-Xchange also come with a very nice web based client. For an extra $20 you can also pick up Oxlook an un open software addon that allows Outlook 2000 and up to connect to Open-Xchange.
*Postfix is an email server
*Cyrus IMAP allow imap services though Posfix
*Spam Assassin is a highly excepted standared when it comes to spam protection.
*ClamAV is email server win32 antivirus protection solution
*Webmin is a web-based system administration tool.
*Bind = A DNS Server
*AVA-ADM – My Administration tool developed in PHP.
AVA-SBS installs an configures everything with only the need of answering around 10 questions ( most of which are already answered for you ).
== SADMS integration tool ==
SADMS (''Samba as Active Directory Member Server/Station'') takes care of handling configuration to achieve the '''integration of Linux hosts to an Active Directory domain''', to the effect that
* Linux hosts become Windows domain hosts (and act either as station or server),
* Windows domain users become Linux users (authentication is offloaded to the domain).
Supported distributions (v2.02) : Fedora 4 (and Redhat), Mandrake 10.2, Debian 3.1, Ubuntu 5.10
== GOsa - GOnicus System Administrator ==
A GPL webbased LDAP User and Groupmanagement tool. Designed to be as powerfull as easy to use. Current implementations are able to manage the following aspects of user/group management:
* posix Accounts with trust extensions
* Samba Accounts, incl. sambaMungedDial handling for e.g. Terminal Server profiles (GOpdc)
* Mail accounts, including Kolab and "ordinary" Postfix/Cyrus setups
* Proxy user handling
* FTP accounts
* GOfax/Hylafax Faxaccounts
* VoIP/Telephone stuff
An ACL for nearly every common LDAP attribute can be set, to allow users/groups to manage some/all properties of their/others accounts. If needed users have also the ability to manage/supervise Fax-/Voicetraffic and Systems Logs.
GOsa is programmed by a community of people and newest versions are always available via SVN. [http://oss.gonicus.de/project/?group_id=6 Project Pages].
Sources and packages are available [ftp://oss.gonicus.de/pub/gosa here]
