I am currently testing LDAP (openldap) combined with nss_ldap,
configured with authconfig.

I would start by testing IPA.  Redhat is building out a set of
enterprise management tools which include cobbler and spacewalk; I
would think IPA will eventually be integrated into their mgt tools.

That said, if you want to use Ldap + Kerberos, here are two good howtos:

The "current" centos rpms for Ldap are quite old; you should consider
rebuilding the latest fedora rpms for your system.
