I'm looking for a way to access user information not stored in /etc/passwd, (i.e. an ldap database) On Linux I would install the proper nss module and set that up, but it seems freebsd doesn't support that yet. My ultimate goal would be to authenticate it against a win2k active directory service (sorry, I have no control over it and can't do it the other way around) I know about the pam modules, but I also need the user info as well. Also, what should I do about the home dirs? Make them all use some generic home dir or use something like a pam module that creates one, I believe linux has such a pam module.
I remember reading somewhere in the samba docs that it is possible to authenticate against a win2k ads so I think I should be able to do this, but I'm still very new to freebsd. -- I sense much NT in you. NT leads to Bluescreen. Bluescreen leads to downtime. Downtime leads to suffering. NT is the path to the darkside. Powerful Unix is.
