Looking for a SUSE Tech to talk general and specific issues.

I have been in the business for 30+ years and in the last 8 for a smaller company that has a mixed environment.
What contacts I had in previous jobs are no longer around or not sutable for what I am wanting to do.
Coming from a proprietary and unix background, I have been playing with SUSE (Open and Enterprise) Linux for
a few years now. I have some Enterprise VMs running now on a limited basis.

What I want to do is see how I can capitalize on Linux (more explicitly on Enterprise Server and Desktop) and
attempt to minimize the Windows influence.

I have questions about Windows / Linux co-existing both on the desktop and the server level with some type of AD.
I have no AD now and I have questions on how much security and control I may have with a non MS AD based s/w.
I have questions about the AD options and how they would integrate with a MS AD that is used currently for a single
app and or replace the MS AD with the Linux AD.
I have questions about providing OS updates for devices that are not allowed on the internet.

I also have questions about allowing mobile devices into the company network for traveling employees using the
Linux AD based security.

I need to talk with someone or group that can guide me so I can get myself back into the mainstream again.

Hi John,

Your easiest option is to ask/discuss in the product forums at
http://forums.suse.com Just pick a forum (forums) that match the product and
the aspect of the product you want to talk about and post away. That’s where
the SUSE geeks hang out. There are a lot of good folks that are usually
willing to help with general and specific issues. Good luck.

…also, if you’re looking for something a little more official or something
directly from SUSE, there are a lot of options available to you. Go to the
SUSE home page http://www.suse.com, click on the SUPPORT & SERVICES tab at the
top, and you’ll be presented with a variety of support options.

I was not able to post to the forum other than this one. Now I see that I can.
I will try to work within the forum now. Thanks.
