Password control with YP(NIS)

Hi all,

We are running NIS on Solaris boxes and I am currentlu trying out
OpenLdap in this environment . Is there a way I can define and modify
users passwords on Ldap which gets reflected in NIS databases also ? 

We are currently maintaining two sets of passwords , one in NIS and the
other for Novel Network, by different support groups . How to
synchronise NIS and Novel passwords with a single LDAP repository ? I
don't know if this would reduce security level (from two passwords on
different domains to single LDAP password entry)
