We have two ubuntu servers and 10 ubuntu client machines. I want to maintain all users from the server something like Active Directory in windows. Is there any GUI for maintaining and achieving such ? I have heard LDAP can be the backend but , how do I manage everything from one place?

I know about Canonical's Landscape, but I am looking more of something which is free of charge.


Definitely LDAP configuration is not for beginners, but there's some tools that makes the process a lot easier.
You can try Zentyal as server (http://doc.zentyal.org/en/directory.html), it's not hard to configure and maintain. And follow this question for client configuration: How to configure Ubuntu as an LDAP client?


Apache Directory Studio is an effective visual platform for maintaining entries in a directory server.
