LDAP "I have no name!"

Hi Everyone,

Once I got LDAP authentication working, I noticed that the command prompt and 
whoami returned "I have no name!".  I resolved this by installing/configuring 
nscd.  I saw that Debian has unscd.  However, I was wondering if there was 
alternative to running a daemon?

If a caching daemon is needed, is nscd or unscd more desirable?  I've read 
pros/cons for each.

Thanks and Regards,
