I am currently configuring ldap on our Solaris and AIX boxes. Our set-up is using Kerberos and LDAP configured to Windows 2003 R2 Active Directory.  Kerberos and LDAP is working thorugh authentication.  We are now on the group authentication.

I have noticed that on Solaris, we need to configure the file /etc/nsswitch.conf.  Is there a counterpart file in AIX?

To get AIX to work in the environment you describe requires the installation of some additional
software and some fairly extensive configuration. You need APAR IY91514 from IBM, and
once that is installed, you need to check and configure some more. See the Redbook from
