    Q. What is the status of NIS+ for the Solaris[tm]
9 Operating Environment?
    A. NIS+ is a mature and stable naming service.
Sun's customers have indicated a preference for using
IETF standards for naming services based on
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). Sun is
indicating formally that there are plans for NIS+ to
be removed after the Solaris 9 release. Customers are
encouraged to migrate to iPlanet[tm] Directory Server
v5.1, which is integrated in the Solaris 9 Operating
The iPlanet Directory Server incorporates the latest
technology and is based on LDAP standards.
