Hi, Everybody!

I set up OpenLDAP in order to work as an authentication server (for CVS, Apache's directories, etc.), but I'd also like to use LDAP to centralize the Linux/Windows (SAMBA) accounts of a network. I have been reading HOWTO's and checking the OpenLDAP's mailing list, and everything points to I have to use NIS with LDAP.

My doubt is if I have to set up NIS for reading the accounts' information from the LDAP server or if I have to set up LDAP in order to work as a NIS server.

Thanks in advanced.
