I heard from microsoft people that W2K could not authenticate user from
a directory other than AD !?. Authentication on W2K is kind of a black
box (LSA) that is directly link to AD and could not be redirected to
openldap for example. I heard also about problems with SID and other
services that AD provides like profile managment ... that could not be
served by other ldap directory .

Again, this is what I heard, it might be untrue ?, any comment on this ?
