[Linux-cluster] Re: [Cluster-devel] PAM and NSS for clusters



Hi,

this looks very interesting. I think that a shared /etc/passwd saves a lot of 
trouble with user management in a cluster. 
Another way to get a shared /etc/passwd and /etc/nsswitch.conf is to use a 
shared root cluster. In this case, all configuration files can easily be 
shared in a cluster. You might be interested in having a look at 
http://www.open-sharedroot.org

Best Regards,

Mark
