NIS to ldap layout

I have 3 NIS domains I wish to convert to ldap. I would like to keep 3 separate areas in ldap since the NIS domains have different accounts. I created a base dn and loaded data under 3 higher levels, such as base is dc=xyz,dc=com and dc=a,dc=xyz,dc=com dc=b,dc=xyz,dc=com dc=c,dc=xyz,dc=com. Then if I want client one to be in domain a, I set its base to dc=a,dc=xyz,dc=com. This works for host name lookups but when another host tries to login to the box via telnet or rsh, the login hangs after the password is entered, ssh works though. If I specify a binddn on the client with dc=a,dc=xyz,dc=com, I can login via telnet and rsh but name lookups fail on the host. Any idea what is causing this? Is this the best way to have separate DBs for clients?
