compat mode in /etc/nsswitch.conf with SSSD

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We found that the following configuration in nsswitch.conf works to get compat behaviour with sssd
passwd: compat sss
passwd_compat: sss
  • However we could not find this to be documented in any man page. Is this configuration supported?
