 _Description: Enable shadow lookups through NSS?
- For the proper operation of the PAM stack the NSS module should return
- shadow information for LDAP users, otherwise these users will not be able
- to log in. Note that the shadow entries themselves may be empty (i.e. it
- is not needed to expose password hashes).
+ To allow LDAP users to log in, the NSS module needs to be enabled to
+ perform shadow password lookups. The shadow entries themselves may be
+ empty - that is, there is no need for password hashes to be exposed. See
+ for background.
- More background information on this requirement can be found here:
- .
- You can edit /etc/nsswitch.conf by hand or choose to add the entry
- automatically now. Be sure to review the changes to /etc/nsswitch.conf if
- you choose to add the entry now.
+ Please choose whether /etc/nsswitch should have the required entry added
+ automatically (in which case it should be reviewed afterwards) or whether
+ it should be left for an administrator to edit manually.
