Are all the clients Linux? How big is your user pool, Samba4 is still in alpha stage, but I built it and it worked good for my purpose. Also, some distros like Redhat/CentOS have a directory server you can install and configure. I have done this also, but did not tinker with it much because I got bored and reformatted my server and started from scratch, and did not reinstall it yet.
I will take a look at that, here is what i have so far tried and am trying.
Kerberos+OpenLDAP (still working on this)
Is it possible to configure Kerberos to store the passwords for an NIS Mapped network.
I liked the way NIS worked, as I could disallow all users except for a selected few to the environments they needed access too. but because of how the NIS/YP send the password has unencrypted across the network it makes it not a viable solution.
The issue I was having with LDAP, is denying users access to a specific machine, while providing them access to others. I could only get this one to work by having all users access every machine.
