Re: solaris pam vs. padl.org pam for ldap

Neither is particularly well documented. The Solaris solution
is a little trickier to setup as you need to install some
custom object classes in the server (not just RFC 2307)
and associate a NIS domain with an LDAP search base. This
could make it trickier to get a machine that is both a NIS
client and an LDAP client to work.

As for stability, etc, well, the PADL code has been
around longer but the Solaris code was written by
a paid team of commercial programmers :-)
