Re: Change password as root

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for the reply, I may give nscd another go, at the moment i am looking at seeing how much effort it is to install an openldap client server on each host. If it is easy i may go that way. My problem is that currently using libnss_ldap libpam_ldap the passwd program will change passwords of users without prompting for their password. This is needed as we allow not only admins to change passwords. We also allow admins of our customer via a sudo privilege to change passwords of users whom they control via group memberships. We can not be giving out the admin main password for this task nor can we be responsible for resetting passwords of all our client companies.

Do you have any other ideas which may help?
