Well, I hard-locked all the systems I tried to install libnss-ldapd along with
nslcd: no ssh sessions, no console logins, nada. Once more, a PAM-related
issue I guess.
Also, it seems that all the info I find out there about how to configure those
are either obsolete, very old and in some cases, 'not even wrong' :)
As for being 'deprecated', https://wiki.debian.org/LDAP/NSS
"In general libnss-ldapd is simpler but newer and libnss-ldap is more mature
but more complex...".
The author of nss_ldap and pam_ldap officially abandoned those packages ~9 years ago.
for those packages was redirected from the authors at PADL.com
back in 2007
and we (Symas) have promoted nss-pam-ldapd and OpenLDAP nssov since 2010.
nss-ldap is not mature, it is dead.
