I am planning to integrate my Active Directory to a Non-Active Directory Environment. How can I do that? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the comparison of both Active and Non-Active Directory? Can you please send me some suggestions? Thank you.
Integrating Active Directory to a Non-Active Directory Environment
An active directory environment has a very big advantage though anything that has an advantage usually has disadvantages. Active Directory ensures security within the network perimeters as in it can dictate who is able to access the network and who is not able unlike in an environment without it where people can access your network without logging in. Active directory ensures administration thus it is like an administrator to your network reporting who logged in and who did not by confirming the identity of users who log in and access resources. Note that your options may create alot of problems before even starting consider the state it will put you in – locking some of your users out when they try logging in. The disadvantage is that in such an environment any user can send authenticated messages. The inbox of some accounts will not be found because of destination back end. I hope you will make a sound decision before hand.
