Re: Password file with over 3000 users.
Ever thougt about using LDAP? I do not have an installation that is as
big as yours (only about 800 users), but I have no problems with
performance and the server is not the fastest. home directorys are even
exported with nfs and samba PDC with LDAP and Samba for a M$ Domain) is
doing its job too on this box.
- Must be pam compatible.
- Most users have MD5 passwords, but some are still crypt passwords. I
do not have ready access to the original plain text passwords.
- I don't want to mess around with too much, so I must have real "Unix
accounts" (UID's and home directories) for each user.
- Vanilla Debian "deb" packages.
What alternatives should I consider?
