At present I am going to evaluate FreeIPA, Openldap and AD as possible solutions for us.
For freeipa my understanding is its released in 6.2 which is about November time so
looking at it now seems a good idea, 3 months will fly by.
1) It has a very nice gui, simple to use.
2) Its pretty simple to install, almost as simple as typing dcpromo
3) Its very easy to get RHEL 6.1 clients to join it.
4) Its policy based where you can set rules based on source say user groups, applications
say ssh allow or deny and then targets say server OUs.
So fa its the best thing Ive seen.
I last looked at FreeIPA about two years ago. It looked great but was
still very, very immature. Is it ready for production yet?
