LDAP authentication failover.


I've just set up ldap authentication failover on cray, postel
and carmack for testing purposes to use morris, and then hopper.
I'd like to leave it setup like this for a week or so, and

out to the rest of the workstations then.

To set up the failover, simply set the host line in
/etc/libnss_ldap.conf and /etc/pam_ldap.conf to point to
two ip address or hostnames.  In this case, the line looks
something like:


Please let me know if you see any problems.
