To decrease the reliance on working networking connections, this script produces regular snapshots of an SQL database containing NSS information. The information is locally stored in databases usable with libnss-db. Therefore, a working database connection is only necessary while the script is run, not while logging in or retrieving other NSS information.
The script also tracks which users where added or removed since the last run and creates or removes the home directories accordingly.
These details are provided for information only. No information here is legal advice and should not be used as such.
