When used in conjunction with NSS in a Linux box, this allows me to centralize a number of Linux attributes for users - a specific one here called 'someuser'. The next thing I would like to do is to store information in the LDAP server about other groups that someuser belongs to.
You need posixGroup which is available in two flavors.
Before you dive into this yourself one question: Do you want to design all this yourself to learn stuff in depth or do you want to get something going real soon?
If the latter there are some ready-to-use solutions out there based on OpenLDAP. Being the author of https://ae-dir.com I'm biased of course.
