Yeah, I assume that would do. By now it looks like pam_ldap will have to
do the job of connecting the Unix-based servers to the LDAP directory to
fetch user accounts, Maybe it will be extended later to also provide
group information but right now that's not that much important.

Yes, I'm currently playing around with certain encryption mechanisms the
DMS provides for the password stored there. Basically, it's really just
about making a single table (two if talking about groups, too) in a
relational database accessible via LDAP...

Cheers & thanks,
