If I buy the Lacie, i will be using NFS to serve home directories.
Now i want to know : Is the LDAP authentication needed for the NAS ? The way i see it (might be wrong...) : the client authenticate to the server, the server tell the client where to find the home directory and the client go to the NAS to get its data.
Please tell me if I'm wrong :)

Maybe you must use SMB for sharing but for the login, some NAS system can get LDAP information. It's depend of the model.

Umm how are you going to authenticate as a AFP user to your NAS box? Are you going to create your users and passwords in the NAS device as well, thereby having 2 databases to maintain? Or does your nas box have some way of connecting to the ldap database on the ODM and authenticating that way
It would be much simpler, to have another AFP server. Also every NAS I've used has been woefully slow compared to a AFP server with a gigabit connection.
