Where does that information come from?

Even though Lustre might not support LDAP directly, it should work
with NSS which makes the access to the user/group information
transparent to applications. Unless an application accesses
/etc/passwd directly (which I sincerely doubt Lustre does) it will
work with nss_ldap.
