Re: porting SSOD (Single sign on daemon to sync passwords with windows) to dragonfly bsd

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.

The more I think of it the more I like the idea, even in an AD I would setup SSOD so that I always have a duplicate for my account names & passwords. This would prevent vendor lock-in and allows me to be more flexible in my network design.
And even when disaster of disaster happens (losing the AD) I would still have account information. This would definitely feel me more comfortably. Having accounts in a unix syste, would also easen the path to migrating clients to OSS.
