nss_compat missing support for ldap
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:04:31 EST
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.
The following configuration in /etc/nsswitch.conf is not supported:
passwd: compat ldap
This should work in current RHEL3 beta1 (glibc-2.3.2-58 and later).
Backporting it to 2.1 is too risky.
