Hi,
we have a huge network comprising of NT Terminal servers/nt-domains/stand alone servers all under a single nt
domain name.We alsohave SOLARIS 2.6 running NIS+ Naming service.These two domains are interconnected but we have to create users twice. one in NIS+ and the other in NTdomain.
Can THESE BE INTEGRATED INTO A SINGLE AUTHENTICATION process.1)that is we create logins in solaris NIS+ and automatically they become the valid users for NT DOMAIN and vice versa.

more broadly CAN THE NT DOMAIN TRUST THE USERS OF NIS+ AND JUST ACT AS CLIENT TO THE NIS+ .HOW CAN WE DO THIS?????

ANY ANSWERS

Other than the Schumann stuff that ahoffman mentioned, there is no
current solution.  However, Microsoft has committed to use a standard
version of Kerberos with Windows 2000, at which point a single notion of
identity for both Windows and UNIX will be achievable without superhuman
(or expensive) effort.
