Not sure if this is the right list to post my problem...
Did anyone ever try to get passwd_compat working with LDAP under Linux
(in particular RedHat 7.3)?
When I have
passwd: files ldap
returns the users in /etc/passwd and those in LDAP, as expected.
Then I tried
(someuser exists in LDAP) in /etc/passwd.
returns the users in /etc/passwd except someuser, as expected.
So far, so good. But
id -a someuser
id: someuser: No such user
According to the man page of nsswitch.conf:
By default, the source is `nis', but this may be overriden by specifying
`nisplus' as source for the pseudo-databases passwd_compat,
group_compat and shadow_compat. This pseudo-databases are only
available in GNU C Library.
Obviously, there is no pseudo-database support for LDAP under Linux...
or am I doing something wrong?
