I have users in various offices and thus in different organizational units in the tree. I want to be able to set up workstations with a standard install including an enterprise-wide standard client install. For example, if a user is in Ou=prod.O=TREE and another user is in OU=corp.O=TREE, how can I set the context on a standard workstation that will work for both users?

SOLUTION: Set up a OU=users.O=tree container in the tree. Create aliases in this container and point these aliases to the user objects in the tree. Now you can set the client workstation context to OU=users.O=tree and the users will be able to login no matter what their context.
