We are in the process of converting our university network from Novell
Netware to Kerberos/OpenAFS/OpenLDAP. The network counts about 7000 users.
There are 2 geographic locations (schools), both have their own server
centers. There is a quite fast connection between those 2 nodes.
Since this is the first time for most of us to design such a network using
Kerberos, we would like to get some advice here.
1. How many realms should we create? Is UNIV.ORG enough or shall we create
one for each school or department? Say, UNIV.ORG and SCHOOL1.UNIV.ORG and
2. How should we create user accounts to distinguish students, employees
for each school, similarly to the Novell's "context" concept? At the same
time we need everybody to be able to log-in in any computer throughout the
university network without much effort.
