Which is why we wrote RFC4876, which allows the DUA to convert the RFC2307 schema (or any schema) to the locally deployed schema.  For example, posixGroup can be mapped to a dynamic group.

Hi Bob,

Thanks, but one of the most powerful features of DBIS gives us the 
ability to pull together the entries for any given map from multiple 
locations in the DIT, using a mix of different schemas.  This makes it 
so much easier to merge NIS domains together without having to manually 
export/transform/import anything.

Best regards,
Mark.
