Bug#584914: NIS groups
Dear Debian Fellows !
My investigations suggest that those 3 bugs are related: #599399 #584914 #616171.
I have here a Squeeze 64 host that shows the same problem explained by Arto (#599399).
I updated it to the latest updates / proposed updates yesterday (22-08-2011).
Package versions are:
(re-)Description of the problem:
a/ login in with a local account which is declared locally in a NIS group (/etc/group + syntax)
- with 'group: compat' or 'group: compat nis' in nsswitch.conf,
this does NOT work, group is absent
- with 'group: files nis' or 'group: nis files',
this DOES work, group is present
b/ login in with a NIS account, which belongs to 4 NIS groups and 2 local groups
and which primary group is a NIS group
- whatever recipe put in nsswitch.conf, this NIS account belongs to
its 2 local groups and only its NIS primary group : zero secondary NIS group
I hope this can help track & solve this very serious issue.
