Ok I have looked a couple options but I really dont know how to accomplish what I need to do.

Here is what I am trying to do.

I have a greater organization that is stuck on using Microsoft products namely Microsoft LDS.   To make matters worse they present the data to my linux servers in a completely non-standard way.   Its driving my solaris and linux box nuts and they simply dont want to work with it.

What i need to do is continue to use the campus usernames and passwords but present the Data in a format that my linux/unix hosts can use.  Is this possible?

i.e.  userid would still be samwise but instead of a bizzarre OU=monkeypeople,dc=example,dc=com I want it to present as people,dc=example,dc=com.

I looked at referral and aliasing but it does not seem to be doing what I am trying to do.  Passthrough authentication looks close but I cant find sufficient documentation to actually configure a system to use it.
