[opensuse] /etc/passwd compulsory fields
Hi

Apart from the obvious, passwd (5) doesn't say which fields are
compulsory.

I see that my local login is:
lynn:x:1000:100::/home/lynn:/bin/bash
and my login to AD is:
lynn2:*:3000023:20513:lynn2:/home/users/lynn2:/bin/bash

I need a domain user like a squashed root on NFS, so I made a user with
just uidNumber and gidNumber:
cifsuser:*:3000020:20513

It seems to work fine. cifsuser cannot authenticate but I see that ALL
the entries in /etc/passwd on 12.3 installs have home directory and
login shell populated.

Question
Is there anything I've overlooked? _Should_ I specify the 12.3 fields
for cifsuser too?

Thanks
L
