LDAP as NIS or LDAP+NIS?
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.
