OK, aware the /etc/nsswitch.conf I do at first the "rpmconfigcheck".

cp /etc/nsswitch.conf.rpmnew /etc/nsswitch.conf
solve the problem - but how a normal user should know it?

No, the better way would have been to save the original as
*.save-$(whatever) and modify the file in place.


If there are changes to passwd or group maps lines in /etc/nsswitch.conf
to integrate with a central user management one could not even login

I cannot follow. If you add usrfiles to services, protocols, rpc, ethers and
aliases, why would that change prevent users from login?

I'm pretty sure, that this will be the way, SLE and probably a future Leap
will do this transition...

I hope not!

You shouldn't always imply the worst, Michael.

There were a lot of much more involved transitions in the /etc/pam.d ongoing,
and most of us never noticed!

If nsswitch.conf would have been treated like this, a lot of churn would have
been avoided, sure, but approaching this from the positive side, many users
are aware of "rpmcheckconfig" now, some probably of "systemctl enable
rpmconfigcheck", and a few even of "etc-update".

All the best!
