I remember seeing something recently about NISGINA.DLL.  It
replaces the MSGINA.DLL of NT and allows NT to obtain
NIS+ passwords.  This might be a way to consolidate passwords.

I am considering implementing a pilot using NIS+ to serve passwords
to NTW machines.  Does anyone on the list have comments on this topic?
