Intigrating Solaris with Active directory

I am currently looking to intigrate a bunch of Solaris
9 systems with Active
directory.  My current line of
thinking is to use Kerberos to authenticate
Which leaves the issue of how to provide a name
service (i.e shared
username/uid group/gid mappings). 
Currently we use NIS+ and particularly the
syntax to restrict access to machines.  We want to
move away from
this as Sun keep warning of its demise.
Is there any way to do this with LDAP
as a name
service.  Are there other ways of doing this with
lesser name

Any other suggestions would be most welcome.  Summary
to be
provided if appropriate.
