Phew, seems like people don't know how to trim posts around here!

Anyways, I suggest you install SSH keys on your systems, I've found
I can authenticate with a system using an SSH key no problem even
if LDAP is down.

I finally migrated off of LDAP this past weekend for my home network,
files are so much simpler :)

(even for my work network with 300 systems)
