I an new to LDAP, and I have a need to migrate the existing system to
ldap as this will ease a bit the management for the new system
implementation. I need to authenticate users for a web site, and for the
internal system ( linux, windows stations .... etc). Now the available
account objectclass is structural so I can not user inetorgperson with
account as both are structural. In this case I decided to extend
inetOrgPerson, and add username and password as a MUST attributes. This
is because all the users have access to the web site and they need
authentication, but some users will need to have access to the machines.
In this case I will create a new objectClass (ie. accountInfo) which
containts the info I need (home directory, shell, loginScript, .... etc).
I'd recommend to use inetOrgPerson together with posixAccount for the
users which need shell access.
