Well... I should say that originally slapi-nis did not support binding.
And it was not intended to support binding.
We had to add binding to slapi-nis for other reasons not related to the
use case at hand.
I doubt that the change would be backported.
Is there any other authentication method that you can use from those boxes?
pam_krb5 or pam_ldap or may be something along those lines?
What OS/version they are running?
