I have OpenLDAP working at CSE. I used the padl tools and migrated NIS
to ldap. I then made my own perl scripts to keep it up to date with
NIS. I also have similar scripts for shadow passwords instead of NIS.
I can use outlook, netscape, evolution to lookup addresses. I wrote
some php classes to enable quick ldap auth for web pages. I also have
sendmail doing lookups against it so I can enable CSE alumni email
addresses without needing a shell account. I chose ldap for that
purpose so they can login to a web page and change the forwarding
address as they need.
I have docs I can clean up if that interests anyone.
