You've already got AD, so you could use VAS ( for
your Unix and Linux systems, VSJ for the J2EE app servers.  Best
practice now days is to standardize on a primary identity store for as
many platforms as possible.  Unix, Linux, j2ee and Windows systems can
all use AD with a few add-on products out there.  The fewer
directories the fewer identities the fewer issues the fewer audit
failures = less admin costs more ROI.  Anything that is legacy that
you can't get working with kerberos/AD you can take a metadirectory
solution like MIIS and synchronize.
