[Fedora-directory-users] Solaris Client

That is correct, we are attempting to use the FDS7 as a central 
authentication system for Solaris 10 NSS Clients with a PAM backend.

We believe that we are missing the proper schemas on the server 
(DUAConfigProfile and Solaris) to support the Solaris Clients.  The ones on 
Tay's website seem to be in the wrong format (schema instead of ldif)...or 
we just dont know how to import them!

We have been scrounging his site for clues/ideas...developers on the client 
side are convinced the server is the issue...developers on the server side 
believe it is the client.  My take is that we already have the server "most" 
of the way, because we are successfully authenticating Linux clients 
securely to the FDS7 server and we are missing some essential piece on the 
server side to solve the Solaris puzzle.

If you have any further thoughts, ideas, or prayers...feel free to send them 
our way.
