Re: NFS schems

for NIS, see the RFC 2307 "an approach to use ldap as a network Information Service" (maby also the 2307 bis) and you will find all you need in the shemas of openldap. you will probably need also the pam-ldap and nss-ldap libraries. see

Does anyone know of any LDAP schemas that I could use
for NFS? I'd like to move away from having my UNIX
users in NIS, but want to know if I'll have to create
my own schema or not. I'd need something that would
contain a user's name, domain, unix id, etc... Are
there any standard schemas already out there?


posixAccount, as you seem to have discovered, can be used as a NIS replacement.
