Description Greg Renzelman 2003-06-11 08:55:29 EDT
Description of problem:

The nss_compat NSS module only supports NIS and NIS+ as the source for 
expanding "+" and "-" lines in the password file. We are using a global account 
database based on Active Directory (through nss_ldap). This limitation of 
nss_compat doesn't allow us to use it.

How reproducible:

The following configuration in /etc/nsswitch.conf is not supported:

passwd: compat ldap
passwd_compat: ldap
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2003-08-05 12:40:46 EDT
This should work in current RHEL3 beta1 (glibc-2.3.2-58 and later).
Backporting it to 2.1 is too risky.
