Question How do I integrate workstation and server passwords

I recently started supporting a CAD group at my work.
The users want one user name and password regardless of what workstation they work on. They have 4 Solaris, 2 Irixs, and 1 Ultrix workstation and 1 Linux server.

How do I set up a relationship between the WS and the server so they can sign onto any WS with the same username and password?

Thanks,

David

there are some possibilities:

NIS
NIS+
LDAP


For all three you need to setup a server and you have to install/configure the client with is a big peace of work for each.

You should start with searching for available clients for all of your systems ... Solaris and Linux are supporting all of them ... Don't know hows going with irix (expect at least NIS is supportet) and ultix.

After you found clients for all of your workstations you should read the original documentations ... thats to much to handle within here ( docus can be found at docs.hp.com, docs.sun.com and some of them in the LDP )
