Thanks. That explains something. I am still somewhat disappointed, though.
It appeared to me that DS is the next NIS, but it doesn't really say
anywhere in big, red flashing letters that a dedicated server is required.
We are paying a Sun partner PS by the hour to set up our systems. I somewhat
object to the idea of spending several thousand dollars and risking days of
downtime to figure this out. Frankly, I expect Sun to document and certify
some workable setup.
Once I get at least two Solaris machines at home, I will toy around along
the lines you indicate. It might just work.
Having seen DS 5.2, it seems nice once its working. Obviously, we're not
doing anything fancy, but we'd like to apply DS whereever possible.
DNS, DHCP, NTP, yeah, those would be nice. We don't have those. Seriously.
I am amazed our open systems platform is working at all. OK, the PC people
have DHCP, but other than that: nothing. No NIS, no NFS, nothing.
Well, thanks ayway.
