This slipped through my radar as well... We're currently using
Heimdal since several years ago it was the only real option if a
LDAP backend was required.

Anyone know if the LDAP databases are compatible between
Heimdal and MIT (in particular the user principals)?

And, this might be a question for one of the Sun or OpenSolaris
lists, but anyone know if there are any plans to add the LDAP
support to the Solaris 11 flavor of MIT krb5?

Thanks,
