Unix Attributes and AD Trust


  • Hello, I have a question about AD Trusts and how it works with Unix Attributes. I'll be setting up a one-way external trust with a domain from another forest that has users and groups with Unix Attributes.  The users and groups will be authenticating to services on Linux servers and I'd like to know if the Unix Attributes from the external domain will work and be visible to the services in my domain.

    I expect you'll need a two-way trust to do this. Those attributes will need to be readable via LDAP from your Linux hosts. To do that search against the foreign domain, the Linux hosts will need to be able to authenticate to the other domain.
