  • LDAP can replace  /etc/passwd and  /etc/groups on some unix machines. In the same way that NIS depends on  /etc/nsswitch.conf to intercept OS system calls, LDAP uses nsswitch.conf for the same purpose. That said, I don't have a *reliable* example of  /etc/nsswitch.conf to show you. There are aspects of that file I don't grok. Do a google search for 'single sign-on' and you should find some relevant material.

    Good luck. I think that robust LDAP support under Unix could be the key to removing more Windows servers from the world. Cheers.
