passwd: compat ldap
group: compat ldap
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4
protocols: db files
services: db files
ethers: db files
rpc: db files
How can I know the server is connected to NIS or LDAP? If its connected to LDAP, the uid must be unique considering the LDAP database? What the "compat" word in password, group and shadow means?
Thank you, and sory for the big ammount of questions.
