Identity Management for UNIX components

You can use the Identity Management for UNIX installation program to install the following:

  • Administration components. Provides utilities for administering Identity Management for UNIX.

  • Password Synchronization. Password Synchronization makes it easy for users to maintain one password for Windows domains and UNIX systems, synchronizing them when one of them changes.

  • Server for NIS. Enables a Windows-based server to function as a Network Information Service (NIS) server, integrating NIS domains with Active Directory and giving Windows Active Directory administrators the ability to manage Windows and NIS domains together. Server for NIS can be installed only on an Active Directory domain controller.
