Red Hat Directory Server / CentOS Directory Server provides an easily administered and robust solution for entities needing an enterprise class LDAP system. With support for 4 way multi-master replication, easy integration into the Red Hat suite of systems, and comprehensive documentation, it’s a good choice for both deploying a new LDAP structure and migrating from an existing one.

Covered topics will include:
Implementing redundancy through multi-master replication
Configuring clients to connect to LDAP for single sign on
Using pGina to provide LDAP auth for windows
Using Samba to provide single sign on for windows through native windows client

After attending this talk a system administrator of moderate experience with windows and Linux should be able to implement single sign on for a small heterogeneous network with little effort.

In addition to Mike’s talk outlined below, we will be holding elections for SoCoSA board members. There are 5 seats and the board elects offices (like president) from amongst those elected to the board, so if you want to help out with the group, you should send an email to discuss@socosa.org nominating yourself for the board.

Mike will be mainly talking about Citrix Presentation Server (now named XenApp.)

Approximate outline:

  • Citrix and its Technology
  • The “Farm” Concept
  • Servers
  • Applications
  • Connecting

Citrix XenApp is a Windows application virtualization and delivery system that manages applications in the datacenter and delivers them as an on-demand service to users anywhere using any device.
