I am trying to apply GPO for client Ubuntu machines in a centralized way.

Is it possible to apply GPO in ubuntu 10.04 ( other than using likewise Enterprise)? Until now my client machines have been able to login with with my windows domain/username with the help of LIKEWISE-OPEN .

But I want to restrict my client machines via GROUP POLICY . Is this possible without using the commercial packages, e.g., LIKEWISE-ENTERPRISE and Centrify?

this is kind of what LDAP is for, and there was another question on this topic a while back: How to apply group policy?
