I'm setting up a smallish network of Centos servers (less than 10) and I'd like to have common logins on all of them as well as network mapped home directories.
I used to work with Solaris quite a bit and the setup I used was NIS and NFS. NIS to get common logins everywhere and NFS to network map home directories.
Is this the best way to go for a new Linux network or are there better options?
I can't say definitively that this network won't ever have a Windows server on it but its likely to stay pure Linux. Ease of setup/use is my top concern. Its a development environment that should be easy to work with.
