Authenticating Mac OSX 10.3.X to Kerberos using LDAP.

Darin Pemberton
Hi,
      I am trying to allow students in the Mac lab to authenticate at the
login prompt to Kerberos using LDAP.  I followed the instructions on
various web sites but the only way that I was able to log in with a valid
kerberos username and password was if I created a local account with the
same short uid name.

I would like to avoid having to create local accounts and allow any student
who has a valid keberos username and password to be able to login. We are
not using AFS. Is there another way do this?  I would appreciate any help
you can provide. Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

There's a big misunderstanding.

Authenticating over Kerberos using LDAP?? Why? Why not using just
Kerberos? LDAP can be used for information retrieval like home dirs,
preferred shell, and so on.

Where are the home directories? How can you make a user home withou
AFS, NFS or other means AND without using local directories?
