I was using LDAP auth. and I kinda figured out that I had concurrent
user's db ! Some users where listed in /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow but not
all. I think that's my issue. I just need to clean up and set local auth
instead of LDAP for all users and modules. I don't have much idea where to
look conf files though. Basically, how one changes from LDAP auth to Local
? What are the security implications ? Any hints ?

Many thanks
