Hi, I am trying to get disconnected login working using pam_ccreds. I
have setup ldap authentication and patched ssh to obtain the user's keys
also stored in ldap. 

When ldap is available, it works, users can login with no problems. When
ldap is not available, I have a local script to collect the ssh keys
from ldap and store them locally on the individual hosts. I also set
nsswitch.conf to use - files ldap db. My /etc/pam.d/system-auth is set
to use pam_ccreds and to top it off I use nss_updatedb to obtain passwd
and group info from ldap and cache it in /var/db every hour

ok, here is the issue: When ldap is not available, sshd can get the key
locally, but then pam_ldap fails and causes fatal error so the users
cannot login. 

However if i run getent passwd <user> or getent group <group>, when ldap
is not available, information is returned.

I read this article:
(half way down the page) which leads me to believe that it can be done,
just a matter of how...

here is my system-auth file:

any help would be very much appreciated
