I'm thinking about connecting the 15 or so laptops in our organisation
Now I'm trying to use nscd in order to enable the users to work when
The test laptop is installed for this occasion, updated CentOs6.3.
Following the advise I found on a few posts I modified */etc/nscd.conf :
enable-cache passwd yes
positive-time-to-live passwd 3600
negative-time-to-live passwd 20
suggested-size passwd 211
check-files passwd yes
persistent passwd yes
shared passwd yes
enable-cache group yes
positive-time-to-live group 3600
negative-time-to-live group 60
suggested-size group 211
check-files group yes
persistent group yes
shared group yes
enable-cache hosts yes
I also Modified*/etc/nsswitch.conf*and changed the order after passwd - shadow - group :
passwd: ldap files
shadow: file ldap
group: ldap files
*This seems to work.*
* When stopping nscd, LibreOffice gives the EM:
/The application cannot be started.
A general error occurred while accessing your central configuration.
/*When starting nscd LibreOffice just works.
*When enabling nscd a can su to an LDAP user from root, without nscd the user does not exist.
*But the problem I'm having* is
I was kinda hoping to log back in from a locked screen or from hibernation, in other words continue a running session.
Or who knows, even start a new session.
Can anyone help me make this work?
Thanks for any advise
