Re: Uid/Gid Question

Okay, I plan to use OpenLDAP on RH7.3 to do authentication, so the PAM stuff will be active, also suppose that /etc/nsswitch will have the ldap switch in there, the question is will getpwuid() check files first and then will it consult ldap to see if there is that id in use or not ?
