Over the last week I have been working on getting the (Ubuntu 18.04) LDAP directory information cached locally to allow the use of roaming users(on Laptops). Getting the LDAP client setup correctly took a little digging around, but I was eventually able to get it to work. There are a few guides available to help out on this matter, although most are outdated. However, when it comes to cached data, I have not been able to find a fully comprehensive guide on the matter. As it seems there are a number of different ways to do this (nscd, sssd) and as it seems these still have a number of bugs, making it even harder to get up and running.
I'm running a simple LDAP server (on a ClearOS 6 dist), and would just like a centralized way of organizing user data for roaming users.
Does anyone have a comprehensive guide(or success) on getting 18.04/LDAP/Cached passwords up and running on laptops???
