CID (Closed In Directory) is a set of scripts for inserting and managing a Linux system in an "Active Directory" domain.
In addition to automating the configuration process to be part of an AD domain, these scripts make modifications to the Linux system that allows it to behave similarly to a Windows system within that context, enabling a series of actions and functionalities such as:
- Execution of logon scripts centrally stored and managed on the domain server, including automatic mapping of network shares (files and printers);
- Cache of the logins credentials allowing recidivist access of domain users when there is no possibility of communication between the station and the authentication server;
- Compatibility of the administrative permissions on the Linux system with the administrative privileges of domain admins;
- Management of file and printer shares via Samba (SMB protocol).
Note: CID uses the "samba" and "pam_mount" projects.
- cid-gtk: Graph utility in GTK+ that presents the functionalities of the application intuitively.
- cid: Command-line utility that has the purpose of automating the execution of the functions of the cid-gtk or be an alternative to the graphical tool.
- cid-change-pass-gtk: Graph utility (GTK+) to help domain users change their passwords.
- cid-change-pass: Command-line version for cid-change-pass-gtk.
- GUI for Samba4.
C-i-d is great! Thanks.
Nice and simple.
