The theory (I haven't bothered to try yet) is to utilise the 'pam_filter'
In theory you can have a object 'loginhost' or the like. That is, you want
user 'xyz' to be able to login to host 'athena' and 'barrabas':
And on host 'athena' you would enter in /etc/pam_ldap.conf:
And on 'barrabas':
As said, this is theory (which I picked up here a couple of months ago). You
will have to make your own objectClass to use this 'loginhost' though...
