I am looking into a project to get password/user synchronization between
Windows 2000 and various UNIX systems using OpenLDAP.
I would like the main user repository to be a ldap server, so solutions
like SAMBA's winbind and PAM Kerberos have been ruled out.
My plan is to use back-perl and a perl script on the main ldap server
that would route any add/delete/modify queries request concerning
entries in the user or group organizational units, to an a OpenLDAP
server on Windows 2000 and also to a server running on a UNIX server. eg...
--> main Win2K OpenLDAP server
ldap query --> OpenLDAP/back-perl--
--> main UNIX OpenLDAP server
On Win2k, I'd like the back-perl to catch the ldap queries concerning
modify accounts and process those via our user administration scripts.
Is back-perl available on Win2K? If it is not, would it be a
significant under taking to port it over to Win2K?
I am new to back-perl, is it even capable of passing the query strings
to external perl programs? Has anyone else done anything like this?
