April 22nd, 2009, 09:03 AM

Iam trying to explore whether can we use a ubuntu linux server as a child domain controller under a windows 2008 server parent domain environment.
We are currently having Windows 2008 server as primary domain controller with one domain one forest.'
We have 5 branch offices and they are working in a workgroup environment.
Now we are exploring to have a domain in individual branches.
Can this be a linux box with a child domain created under our current windows domain? If yes any article reference can you give me so that we will explore the same..
What are the difficulities in it.. what are the features will / will not work in linux if it comes under a windows domain controller...
