Thank you Michael, I want to replace my Windows fileserver with Linux
and I also use it as authentication server for domain users (Windows)
here is my /etc/nsswitch.conf file:::
#hosts: db files nisplus nis dns
hosts: files dns
# Example - obey only what nisplus tells us...
#services: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
#networks: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
#protocols: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
#rpc: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
#ethers: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
#netmasks: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
bootparams: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
protocols: files ldap
services: files ldap
netgroup: files ldap
automount: files ldap
aliases: files nisplus
