Sorry I was mistaken the Novell document I was referring to which
references Linux User Manager and OES is this one:
The document referenced above (http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/
appnote/11788.html) does not utilise Universal Password or provide
any identification functionality above basic user access. This maybe
what you are after but personally I would prefer something that did
not require users to maintain multiple passwords, integrates with
other Windows/Samba servers more closely and provided the smooth
administration experience of the iManager LUM plug-in.
