"I have no name!" -- for root???
Hello, all. I noticed some network flakiness, and went to check on it
by ssh'ing into my main server (which queries another box running
slapd). When I logged in -- as root! -- I was informed
I have no name!@nebula:/etc/ldap#
I wouldn't even be sending this to the OpenLDAP list, except that when I
plugged it in to Google, it seemed LDAP-related. What I'm really
confused about, however, is that root, obviously, is a local account.
This machine has worked fine for months, and while one of my LDAP
servers may have had a hiccough, I don't really see why that would
influence the local account. My /etc/nsswitch.conf queries files first
(and LDAP as the only other entry), so I'm just plain puzzled. To top
it all off, when I did an "lsof", I was informed:
lsof: no pwd entry for UID 0
Any ideas on what might be wrong? Is it LDAP-related, or no? I do have
nscd running; any chance that that could become confused if it can't
talk to an LDAP server?
