RE: OpenLDAP in Solaris 8

Hehe - he's probably right (I wrote it...)

I'd be interested in success stories of using PADLs library against the
Solaris 8 native LDAP libraries - ship as little changed as possible, right?

It is a NIS+ problem BTW.

use the PADL pam_ldap module, as detailed in
 ( The URL gives explicit pam.conf instructions)

That way, your passwords will be encrypted over the wire.

sounds like you somehow have convinced the OS to half-way use nisplus.
look at /etc/nsswitch.conf as well as pam.conf
