Good morning All,

I'm trying to configure my server as an LDAP client. I installed the nslcd 
service and it's working great.

My problem is when I issue the command getent passwd it only returns the LDAP 
user not the local users. 

# nsswitch.conf(5) - name service switch configuration file
# $FreeBSD: releng/10.2/etc/nsswitch.conf 224765 2011-08-10 20:52:02Z dougb $
group: file ldap
group_compat: nis ldap
hosts: files dns
networks: files
passwd: file ldap
passwd_compat: nis ldap
shells: files 
services: files 
services_compat: nis
protocols: files 
rpc: files

When I change the above group and passwd setting back to compat (which was the 
default configuration) I get the local users but none of the ldap users show 
up. In fact nslcd is not even called (i've checked by running it in debug 
mode). So how do I configure nsswitch to use both the local /etc/passwd file 
and the ldap. I need this because without it services will not start. IE nslcd 
complains that nslcd is not a valid user when using the above configuration.

Any help would greatly be appreciated,
