I have my OpenLDAP server up and running and everything "seems" OK.
Now I'd like to remove the "user level" entries in the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files.
Whenever I do that user authentication stops working. Does this mean LDAP is not working ?
So, I drop back to the original passwd/shadow files and look at the /etc/nsswitch.conf and it has "files ldap" as the source path.
Whenever I change to "ldap files" user authentication stops working again.
What am I doing wrong ?
