Would not trust offline auth to nscd. Haven't looked at nss_cache/libnss-db. I would like to be able to seed by off-line shadow account password from theLDAP server, hence the other question about supporting SSHA in /etc/shadow. Anything preventing this other than lack of code?
If you really need everyone in the ldap server to be able to log in offline, can't you run a local ldap instance that sync's when online?
