I know how to setup PAM_LDAP or PAM_KRB5 to get *nix to talk to
Microsoft's A/D .. but in our current environment, all the usernames in
AD are numeric (ie: employee ID number -- which, fwiw, is *not* a ssn,
Problem : UNIX usernames can't start with a number.
Is there a direct way to handle this problem without using an
intermediary (eg: metadabase in openLDAP, Sun Identity Server, etc.)?
