Group policy on Open LDAP

R1- asked:

Active directory on windows can give us many possibilities to manage out network such as Group policy.
In my company, we have Linux systems.
My question is:

Is there any Linux based application or service that can handle the role of active directory GP on Linux that is not be depending on the distro.

How About a Cross-platform management system that can include Windows,
Linux, and Mac.

My answer:


I don’t think it’s Group Policy you’re looking for, per se, but centralized management of a domain of (Linux) computers. In that case you are almost certainly looking for FreeIPA, or its Red Hat Enterprise equivalent, Identity Management.
