I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 as a combination HTPC/utility "server". I have several other computers on my network and would love to be able to have LDAP services so that I can have just one set of accounts across all my computers.
I've read a very small amount about AD-LDS (formerly called ADAM), and it seems like it would allow me to do so without running a server OS in a VM, but I can't seem to find where to download and/or install it. It isn't listed in the list of Windows features/components, and Googling doesn't seem to get me anywhere, at least for Windows 7.
Is AD-LDS really what I want, and if so, is it possible to get it running on Windows 7, or will I need to run a server OS in a VM?
