So, does it break vsftpd for regular system accounts, or just LDAP accounts? I really need to find some time to test libnss again. I'm positive it's the solution, but I keep missing some key configuration somewhere when I try it...

I tried libnss-ldapd, but I couldn't get it to let me authenticate via ldap. I probably missed some part of the configuration, but I can't figure out what. So, what other solutions are there?

I did find this: us.generation-nt.com/answer/… And I have tried using libnss-ldapd. It didn't work very well. Though I intend to try again.

comment adduser says user exists when the user does not exist
Hmm... And it does exist somewhere. Now, to figure out if it's safe to delete. root@ws-prod-www-01:~# id atc uid=199999999(atc) gid=20(dialout) groups=20(dialout) root@ws-prod-www-01:~# getent passwd atc atc:x:199999999:20:atc:/Users/atc:/bin/tcsh

comment adduser says user exists when the user does not exist
I did grep the etc files for the UID. As for why I'm using it... I'm mounting files from NFS that are owned by that UID. So it's simpler to just add the users with their existing UIDs than to go chown all the files to the new UID. I do use LDAP authentication, but I know for a fact that there is no atc user in LDAP. goes to try the id and getent commans
