    Suse login (local or LDAP)


    I have user Id which allow me to login to Suse. When I check the /etc/passwd file, my Id is there. I also know that the same Id is in LDAP.
    I was wondering how SUSE is set up to use LDAP for user authentication. If a user is in local /etc/passwd and group. Will the user be authenticated locally first or LDAP first ? will LDAP override local ? If both local and LDAP can be used, how can we assure that both LDAP and local contains the same information.

    LDAP is configured via the LDAP PAM module. Do you have PAM installed?
