Re: Importing OpenLDAP into base

From what I've heard "nss_ldap" and "pam_ldap" implementation tend towards being complicated because they have to deal with networking issues. Would it perhaps make sense to have an "ldapbind" daemon (similar to "ypbind")

Do you know if this sort of thing is defined anywhere?

I'm not aware of such a definition. I've just seen LDAP behaving really badly
on an old Linux system (Red Hat 8).

I like the idea of doing some stuff automagically like interpolating the
domainname into the basedn,

What domain name? The domain part of the hostname?

I would actually prefer something which is configured like Solaris and/ or Linux
to make integration into heterogeneous networks easier.

        Kind regards
