[Beowulf] Authentication within beowulf clusters.

So, we were just going through out standards and procedures on how we do
various things on our beowulf clusters. One of the procedures that we are
looking at is the way to do authentication.

My question is this, how does everyone handle authentication?

Do you run standalone ldap or nis services on the master/management node
of their beowulf clusters?

We'd like to get an idea of how everyone else handles authentication on
their clusters. If your company/university uses a centralized
authentication service...please explain how you get your private network
nodes to work with that configuration.
