Hi list,

I would like to know whether anybody has succeeded in using the memberof
overlay for others attributes.
I would like a user entry (specifically the host attribute) to be
populated  when a user is added to a posixGroup. Let's say this
posixGroup contains a "hostOfGroup" attribute.

Is it feasible? Or do I need to code my own overlay for that purpose?
If writing an overlay is not needed, is there an esaier way to do that?

Sounds like there may be other solutions to your real problem ... e.g.
pam_listfile with item=group sense=allow

Or use the PAM support in the nssov overlay. Setting a user's host attribute to control logins is ridiculous...
