I have just finished adding the schema that you need to store NIS
to our development version of openldap, however, you need more than
basically if you want your clients to continue to use NIS you need a
that will turn NIS queries into LDAP ones.
If you have SGI workstations you just need to change your config file
(/etc/nsswitch.conf) to tell your clients to use ldap directly.
Not sure about Novel part though or the Wondows one.....
