Windows 7: Active Directory Alternative

18 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Active Directory Alternative

Hi, everyone. I want to make a Windows domain with three of my computers, but my server only supports 32-bit operating systems. Buying a new server is expensive and therefore not an option. Because Windows Server 2008 R2 is 64-Bit-Only, I have to make a decision between two options:
  1. Use the original Windows Server 2008.
  2. Find an alternative to Active Directory that runs on Linux and can have Windows clients. Does anyone know of any?
I appreciate any input. Thanks.
