This is a product enhancement request, unless it is already available and I am
not aware of the capabilities.

Can OpenLDAP be made to interoperate and replicate with Netware NDS 7 or 8, or
MS Active Directory?  Also, to deliver policies and applications to
workstations?  Netware and Active Directory have gateway services for each
other.  If OpenLDAP had gateway services for both of these, it could eventually
replace NDS or AD in an enterprise implementation.

Workstation policy delivery should be supported on Linux/GNU systems as well as
Win9x, NT, 2K, XP, Mac OS 8 to 9.2 and Mac OS X.  

This would open the door to a Linux enterprise desktop implementation.
