Hello everyone,

I have a FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE system configured as a Samba Server with an OpenLDAP backend. I have configured nss_ldap to allow local user authentication via LDAP.

However if I reboot this machine for any reason, the bootup process gets stuck on named. If I Ctrl-C out of named, it gets stuck again on slapd.

However, if i put the original nsswitch.conf back, the machine boots up fine and i have to copy the old nsswitch.conf back to get local user authentication.

Here is the updated nsswitch.conf file:
passwd: files ldap
group: files ldap

From looking at the logs, it looks like these processes are trying to access the ldap server which isnt up since it has not started yet. Is there any way I can get past this (other than using the original nsswitch.conf and changing back manually)?

Thanks in advance,

Pramod Venugopal
