Today we open sourced the project I’ve been working on for the last 9 months, nsscache.
It’s a glorified version of:
ldapsearch | awk > /etc/passwd
in that we in theory support more than just LDAP as a data source, and offer two types of database storage (nss_db using Berkeley DB, and plain text files).
If you’re having issues with your nss_ldap setup, then try it out :)
