Account Management Software

Does anyone know of any software that a help desk would be able to use to add, remove, and change passwords of accounts etc.. basic account management.?

i need some sort of application that will manage accounts on Solaris, AIX, HPUX and Linux... any ideas out there?

I don't have a particular application in mind,
but what you are looking for is authentication
through a database. You'd have to have all
user accounts in an NIS style, and they'd
have to reside in a SQL database of some
description. To get a better idea of what I
am talking about (big evil grin) go to Freshmeat
and search for PAM & SQL.
