OPENLDAP to centralise services

I want centralise many services with openldap.

I have many linux/sun servers.
I want use openldap for:
- User authentification (centralise users/passwords)
- LAN name service resolution.
- Any other

I seek good references. And your comments.
Is it a good idea to replace DNS by ldap ?

Thanks for your suggestions.
