I'm trying to integrate a NetBSD machine into a network which is
mostly made of Debian machines, and which stores all the user
information in a LDAP database.
Apparently, there is no easy way to use a LDAP database for
authentication (sshd, login, sudo, etc) on the NetBSD machine. The
informations I've found:
http://csociety.ecn.purdue.edu/projects/ldap.html (an ugly hack, a
croned Perl script to refresh /etc/passwd from LDAP)
http://www.nectar.cc/zope/freebsd/nsswitch (nss but not LDAP)
nsdispatch apparently has no LDAP support.
Therefore, may I safely assume that I cannot authentify from LDAP on
NetBSD and I should search something else?
