i wonder that nobody is talking about LDAP servers?! Unix vendors are close
to have
"ldap" in nsswitch.conf (with "files" "nis" ..) and there is "ypldapd" as
another approach
(almost ready ;))
should be relatively easy to do something like that on NT domain controlers.
i'm not
sure if there is something at the moment?

there is another thing that can do the job: "KerbNet" from
this used
to be a commercial product but it was converted into a freeware a few months
i personally believe that LDAP solution is the right approach since it
addresses many
other systems administration related issues.
