Graphical interface for Domain Directory management

Registered by Jorge Salamero Sanz on 2012-03-27

With the inclusion of Samba4, Ubuntu still lacks of a graphical interface to manage a domain directory, including LDAP, Samba, DHCP, DNS, etc. For administrators coming from the Windows world a graphical interface is a must. In the past some tools like SWAT did this job but they have become obsolete with the release of Samba4 that needs a more complex setup. Zentyal is currently the only interface on Ubuntu that can manage and maintain synchronised Samba4 and OpenLDAP. We will discuss further improvements on this and integration with Ubuntu default components.
