Re: MacOS X logins very, very slow or failing with Openldap 2.1.23...

My understanding of posixaccount is

cn, uid, uidNumber, gidNumber, homeDirectory

userPassword, loginShell, gecos, description

cn is the full name of the person.

I see that and it would be reasonable for most deployments.  However we
are in a position to have to address FERPA issues where we can not expose
one user's info to another user.  I believe some of the posixAccount
attribs would be too much info under our interpretation of FERPA.
Any ideas how I might structure something to help with this?

We of course are completely under FERPA (and HIPPA) as well. We found no FERPA related issues in exposing posixAccount. Can you tell me what you found as being a FERPA issue?
