Re: migrating from NIS to LDAP

One point I would make is that our software does support
both groups with "flat" names (UNIX login names) as well
as distinguished names.

This is an extension to RFC 2307 which we're yet to
publish, but essentially posixGroup will become an
auxiliary object class and the suggested structural
object class will be groupOfUniqueNames.

For example, a group:

dn: cn=wheel,dc=padl,dc=com
objectclass: posixGroup
objectclass: groupOfUniqueNames
cn: wheel
memberUid: lukeh
uniqueMember: uid=root,dc=padl,dc=com
