ldap or nis ... any pref?
What else can I ask, the subject say's it.
We have 10 box's here, a VPN tunnel to our 2 racks at our ISP, and rather than ssh with key's all over, we want a single login spot. Since I have not used anything like this in the past, I figured OpenLDAP (in theory) would do it, then someone passed by saying look at NIS.
Have I mentioned I haven't done either, looked a bit, then got into the slapd.conf which became quite a bit, so figured I would consult the best group of people out there (flattery never hurt), asking for ideas, or just some feedback.
I have googled, read, etc. but a lot of the stuff on ldap is 2003, etc. so figured someone here would have some newer feedback. As always, thanks.
