RE: /etc/nsswitch cause delay in start
This occurs because, on boot, the server it checking all users for all groups, and this takes about a day (depending of your config). Another work-around, the one I opted for, is using the 'nss_initgroups_ignoreusers' in /etc/ldap.conf. At a minimum, you'll need 'root' in the list.
