    Default howto migrate NIS password to LDAP ?

    Okay from what I understand people migrate from NIS to ldap all the time. My question is how would I do this but migrate to zimbra's ldap server for the Password or username and password?

    Default

    Okay from what i read when people migrate to LDAP they import the passwd file and use PAM module for authenication against the shadow file (i think) so does openldap that comes with zimbra have PAM module already ?

    I don't think so, but not sure exactly what you need to change in OpenLDAP. MY understanding is you could add an LDAP PAM module that will auth against any LDAP server. It's not something I've done myself though.
