The only thing to keep in mind is that by wiping out the whole cache
removes all cached passwords. Depending on whether you use
cache_credentials=True or whether your clients need to cache credentials
at all you do or don't care :-)

If you care, you might want to use the ldbmodify utility to instead
set the dataExpire timestamp to a timestamp from the past (this is what
sss_cache does internally btw)
