Applies to:

Oracle Authentication Services for Operating Systems - Version: and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


OAS4OS version

Login hangs or authentication takes long time when OID server is not available

The "nsswitch.conf" file is already configured to fall back to files if ldap is unavailable (as shown below)

passwd: files
shadow: files
group: files

But, this doesn't work as expected.




OID Server was brought down for maintenance
