Maybe a good reason to join the crowd and not run NIS?
I wish. It's clear to me that NIS is a big problem. But what else is
out there? We have a definite need to share passwd databases across
many machines, from multiple vendors, none of which we have source code
to. How close to a solution can we get?
A wild idea, straight off the top of my head: what about using the DNS
mechanisms? Apologies if this has been suggested and flamed before...
