Years ago I used OpenDirectory but needed to switch to AD when we installed a windows Remote Desktop server. In retrospect I probably could have given it its own login. Live n learn I guess. But now that I'd like to minimize my exposure to Windows (all Mac clients here) I'm wary of moving back to OD as Apple has a nasty habit of turning things off with little notice or choice with OS updates.

I know there is a way to do it, but it's "unsupported." iguration/ldap-and-directory-services/mapping-users-groups-f rom-an-openldap-or-generic-ldap-server-294.html

It would be great if you could ACTUALLY support an alternative to Active Directory, For years I've been paying through the teeth for an AD server when all I really need is a password server (50-ish users, barely an "enterprise"). I obviously need to authenticate other things too obviously (VPN, web page logins, wifi, Windows RD, etc), so I'd rather not go back to locally authenticated email.
