    The main thing people stumble on with NIS is that the user MUST have a login shell defined, and it must be in /etc/shells. vsftpd insists on it. For Active Directory, you have to configure openldap to authenticate against the DC.

    Doesn't have a single answer, too many ways to skin the cats, particularly the LDAP one. Since you want to use 3 authentication databases, you'll be using PAM, and there are multiple ways to handle the order of use of the databases via PAM. If you use nss_ldap, you could set the order in nsswitch.conf.
