Revision [254]

Edited on 2007-09-19 22:59:03 by LinusEricsson
Additions:
~- Courier IMAP for IMAP and POP-service
All server functions are configured with data from the directory service. If a computer is added to the domain, then BIND and the DHCP-server are updated accordingly.
If an additional DNS server is added to the domain, then all clients will automaticly use this one as well since the DHCP server(s) inform the clients about the new nameserver.
If the same function is provided by more than one server, they will be configured to work together by using load balancing, failover or what is suitable for the function in question.

Revision [251]

Edited on 2007-09-19 22:48:46 by LinusEricsson
Additions:
~- Using the domain administration software, you will add or remove functions from all servers in your domain, all functions you add or remove are configured to work perfectly together with your domain without any further configuration (utopia?)
~- Using the domain administration software, you will confiigure all clients, including installing and removing software.
==== How will it work ===
The plan is to use existing software as far as possible (don't reinvent the weel).
~- OpenLDAP as directory service, for storage of account information, computer configuration and network configuration (All configuration in other words...)
~- MIT Kerberos 5 for authentification
~- BIND as nameserver.
~- ISC:s DHCP as dhcp server.
~- Postfix as MTA
~- openAFS for file serving...
~- samba for file serving for windows computers. (I would like to only use AFS, but I dont think this is realistic )
~- Apache as http server.
~- Some sort of TFTP-server

Additions:
~- Windows clients will be installed by first installing using a traditional installation CD, and then installing an application suite to configure it and to connect it to the domain (Please note: Not an Active directory domain, a Halier domain! )
~- Once a domain is created, with at least one domain server, all administration will be performed with the domain administration software


Revision [249]

Edited on 2007-09-19 22:26:49 by LinusEricsson
Additions:
My solution are based on the assumtion that there will be only GNU/Linux servers and no Windows servers, but both GNU/Linux clients and windows clients.
~- When an administrator installs a server he should only be faced some simple questions. Like: New or existing domain
~- When a client computer is installed, there should only be one question: Witch domain do you want to connect to? The client computer will then be under complete control of the domain server
~- If there is a domain server on the local network, it will be possible to install a client computer or a new server directly from the domain server by booting from the network (PXE, TFTP etc.. )

=== Preface ===
GNU/Linux systems on the other hand is very flexible, too flexible. An GNU/Linux administrator will have many descisions to make before he can start installing his server. He will have to choose a distribution, he will have to choose how to store his user data, how to authenticate his users, choose webserver, choose mail transfer agent, choose POP or IMAP-server. There are an huge amount of ways to do things. This is the strength of GNU/Linux (and the whole open source movement ).
I would like a GNU/Linux solution were I don't have to make all descisions. I don't say i would like GNU/Linux to become more like Windows, but I would like a better way to administer several GNU/Linux servers and clients.
==== My dream ====
This is how I would like a computer system to work.
Some of the things here are inspired by the way Active Directory works on windows servers.

Additions:
If an administrator chooses Windows as his server operating system, he usually don't have to make any more choises. He just adds or removes server roles from his server using Microsofts tool for this. Every role he/she installs works together with his server by default. BUT if he/she wants to do something other than the Microsoft way, he will be on his own...
