LDAP removed, passwd: permission denied


Good day all

I set up a lab environment where students log into Debian via LDAP.
I would like to hand out the Linux image I have made, and therefor attempted to remove ldap (libpam-ldap libnss-ldap etc) on a virtual machine.
After doing this however my root user can no longer log in or run passwd.

Any help will be appreciated.

Kind regards
Nexusdk

Hi

I removed ldap with apt-get remove libpam-ldap libnss-ldap and removed all references to ldap in /etc/pam.d/* and /etc/nsswitch.conf
The new login method would be unix accounts.

When I attampt to log into tty1 the screen flashes quicly, upon which I can read permission denied, and displays the login prompt again.

Kind regards
Nexusdk
