Summary: Cannot authenticate via LDAP after switch to nslcd
Classification: openSUSE

Having used Yast LDAP client to setup LDAP, switching to nss_pam_ldapd does not
retain the settings in /etc/nsswitch.conf nor in /etc/pam.d/*. Settings in
/etc/ldap.conf seem to conflict with settings in /etc/nslcd.conf.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Setup LDAP client using Yast
2.Authenticate via LDAP.
3.Install nss_pam_ldapd via yast and accept to remove nss_ldap.
4.Configure /etc/nslcd.conf with your own settings

Actual Results:
Cannot now authenticate via LDAP.

Expected Results:
Transparent migration from nss_ldap to nss_pam_ldapd.

The files in /etc/pam.d seem to lose all references to LDAP when Yast LDAP
Client is set to not use LDAP. The solution is to overwrite /etc/pam.d with a
copy from before you disable LDAP in Yast LDAP Client.

Would it be possible for Yast to make the switch to nslcd and preserve the pam

Maybe I should leave the Yast settings to 'Use LDAP', but then /etc/ldap.conf
is used instead of /etc/nslcd.conf
