I fail to see why you can't use NIS!? You can bind to different domains so
just run your 30 debians under their own NIS domain and you can cross exist
no problem. If you even maybe host the NIS Servers on the same machine I could
think of some very nice perl scripts to cross import data between them if you
need same userids but different services for ex. We had a similar setting
at the university of salzburg which worked very well.
