yum install ypchsh and
yum install ldapmodify both don't find a package. I only want to change the shell for certain ldap users on this one server. Someone please help, I can't seem to figure this simple thing out. The passwd file won't work because the user isn't listed there I think. I don't just create an entry there I suppose. If I edit their login shell in their LDAP profile I think it would apply to all systems. There must be a mapping file somewhere -- in /etc I am guessing -- to map their attributes to local system settings.
It was so easy, if your nsswitch is files ldap, you could just add an entry to /etc/passwd and modify their shell to whatever value. You cannot use useradd though, you would need to edit the passwd file with an editor like vi or use the vipw command.
