Re: 'simulating' NDS with openldap?

>i got a NAS Appliance, and expect a nightmare regarding uid/gid mapping

What software is actually running on the NAS?  Is it actually Novell or
something else.  I've met a couple of these beasts that are Linux using
NSS LDAP, in which case your in luck. (BTW, NSS LDAP works with NDS,
ADS, etc... so it fleshes out their feature list nicely).

I don't believe so.  Last version of NDS I played with had an LDAP
provider but LDAP wasn't it's lingua franca.  But that was a very long
time ago.
