I have problems with debian etch Linux clients resolving group names
served by our LDAP server. user and passwd work because I can login
"getent group" properly shows the group served by the LDAP server.
eg: #getent group
However "id username" only shows LDAP served groupIDs but not their names.
eg: #id chris
uid=1002(chris) gid=1000 groups=1000,20(dialout)
This means that I can't do things like chgrp eg: "chgroup mygroup
"chgrp: invalid group `mygroup'"
I am using nscd and nsswitch.conf says:
passwd: files ldap
group: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
