Bug#613214: use libpam-krb5 for uidNumbers greater than 10000 only (as opposed to the default > 1000)

My DebianEdu squeeze (which was a DVD snapshot install from today -
20110213) adds local users starting with uidNumber=1000.

Thus, user creation in LDAP and in /etc/passwd start off with the
same uidNumber. I recommend setting the first LDAP uidNumber to a
higher value (like 10000 or so).

Then I suspect you are doing it wrong.  If you want a local user, you
need to add --uid 500 or so to adduser.  :)

Wrong is a matter of context here. I just use the Debian defaults and they uidNumbers>=1000 for /etc/passwd... Skolelinux-LDAP should not conflict with the Debian squeeze default, shouldn't it?

If you want adduser to create local users by default, ie with uids in
the 500-1000 range, you should probably edit /etc/adduser.conf to
change its behaviour.  These are the relevant settings:

Please decide what you prefer (modify adduser defaults or modify LDAP uidNumber range) and file a bug for either of the needed changes.

I would prefer the higher LDAP uidNumber range, but I cannot foresee the consequences.
