Besides alot of other tools there is that SSOD which syncs the password
between unix and windows, out of the box support is for RedHat, AIX,
HP-UX and Solaris.
The sync can be with or without NIS and you can sync them to
2000/2003/XP in or without Active Directory.
At least for Active Directory, you can use normal KerberosV authentication
and LDAP / LDAP-NIS gateways.
Thanks for your reply, I was already aware for this kind of a solution
but I like to keep it more general as I wanted to sync with a couple of
XP boxes without a domain, which means that I use a central DF box to
centralize the passwords for the XP boxes and use some scripts to create
user on the local machines, this way I can spear me the cost of an 2000
server and migrate as much as possible to unix.
