As someone already mentioned, you can try the LDAP to NIS gateway from
padl.com. For some reason I was thinking that Sun's LDAP server also
has a NIS gateway but I was wrong. In the question 5. of the NIS+ EOF
FAQ they mention:
Q. What is the future plan for NIS?
A. Through products and services Sun is enabling customers to make the
transition to LDAP based naming services. Once these transitions
are well underway, Sun will evaluate the appropriate time to
formally announce the transition plan for NIS. It is likely that
our plan will follow the one for NIS+, modified by experiences
gained during that transition. The earliest that such an
announcement would occur will be the Solaris 10 release.
