Thanks Jerry. Is there a specific level of Kerberos from eith MIT or
Heimdal? For example, do I need to have a least version 5-1.4.x or
something? The reason this is important to me is that the sysadmin
tells me that AIX comes with an implementation of Kerberos but I don't
know which one and from what vendor. Seems I read somewhere that it is
a subset of MIT. If I can't tell them a version, they'll hammer me and
say they can't move forward until I can answer that question.

Also, is OpenLDAP 2.2.x a requirement? I have not seen that mentioned
elsewhere. Again, I am not wanting to BE the directory on AIX but only
be a member of the directory. Does that make sense?

Thanks again.
