I don't see why, unless it was your initial intention. Yast chooses the

I don't think we're talking the same language here. On a network, user ID,
be it uid/gid or m$ SID _has_ to be done centrally. You could not have more
than one master server for the purpose of user and group management. If you
did, it would be a race.

It doesn't really have to be done centrally. In fact, none of the Linux
setups I have seen in the enterprise were done this way, they were
independent machines serving whatever they did.

And... does YaST setup that automatically? It does setup ldap automatically
on SLES, but I doubt it does it in openSUSE.

Yes. There are Yast modules for both Server and Client. You can point and
click your way to a LDAP server just as you can with sles. There is even a
nice graphical front end called LDAP Browser all without leaving Yast.
Ideal for looking up names, addresses, telephone numbers and, if you must,

Yes, but I haven't seen a module to create the LDAP setup for this unless
you really know what you are doing.

I tried right now.
It says that "CA certificate file does not exist".
I press the button to launch the CA Management module. I create a root
certificate, and try again, same error.

As said, it is not that simple.
