I don't believe NIS is where I want to go, but here is my setup:
A Fedora 14 server, a Ubuntu 10.04 desktop, a Fedora 14 laptop, and several Win7 Home desktops (no Win Server yet).
I've installed 389 Directory Server on the Fedora 14 box and can issue ldapsearch -x from the Ubuntu box with success.
I'd like to have single user logon at any of the above boxes and have common password enforcement policy and privileges.
I believe this will involve configuring pam modules and more?
