WE have about 200 computers that are to be put under domain login on linux with a ubuntu server .(ie The users will login to the client systems using authentication information stored on a central server over the network)

I heard about LDAP and openLdap to implement this but I am not sure as to what the procedure is . I did try some references , but still I am quite un-certain as to wheather this can be done .

If you want one documentation to follow, try this.

Your needs will be met by Freeipa, which is a super-charged implementation of Ldap. If you are not good with Linux, ldap and related things, you may need to get dedicated support.
