Re: Local users


thank you for the information.

My pam configuration is like :
account     sufficient uid < 1000 quiet

user from ldap are using ids > 1000

But Debian uses : UIDs 1000-29999 are normal user accounts.

So I have to find out how to split user localclly created et users
from the ldap.
