Summary

This chapter covered the techniques used to make your machine into a member of a cooperating cluster of computers, or to make it into a server for such a cluster. It also covered techniques that can be used to automate the creation and customization of user accounts on your machine or in your cluster.

The most important thing to remember is the Unix abstract notion that it doesn't matter where things like user account information are coming from or where drives are coming from. The OS is designed so that it can acquire such information and resources from any compatible system, and so can be combined with any compatible systems to provide a seamless user experience across any number of machines.
