You should translate the above into LDAP requests for the
benefit of those who haven't a clue (and don't care to have
one) as to what Solaris login is doing here.

If you don't know what Solaris login is doing here, suggest
you figure that out first.  Logs and sniffing tools likely
would help.  Or maybe a list specific to Solaris login...

Until then, Kurt
