So, how do i authenticate Win-Shares AND unix users on a SunOS4 box
against LDAP ?
Anyways, our NIS+ server is running Solaris 2.5, which does not set
the expiry field correctly, so it is not possible to setup Linux
boxes against NIS+... sure, upgrading the old NIS+-server would be the
first step here, but...
At the current time, we use LDAP for Win domain logins,
and NIS+/NIS-replica´s/NIS for unix logins. I still cannot
see a migration plan for this setup. Any hints ?
