Good topic: user management for 10+ ubuntu machines

The goal: force globally password policies on Ubuntu Desktop machines (force password change, force password complexity).

Would be good but not required - manage user accounts.

  1. I do not fully like a idea of one central server that can modify every machine. Would be nice if the clients would be just pulling the changes from the server, and report theirs state.

  2. I know that Point.1 is tricky, probably not easy to do. Skipping that restriction, what do You think of a central management solution? Ubuntu Landscape does not provide user management. The 'Ubuntu Domain Management Server' might be a right choice. Any suggestions?
