I have a Fedora server configured for LDAP. However, the LDAP server is gone, and now I'm unable to SSH into it. I've rebooted the server into single-user mode, brought up eth0 and started sshd, but when I try and ssh into it, the connection times out and the server reports "nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server server is unavailable".
How do I completely purge LDAP from the system and disconnect it from any external LDAP dependency? I've ran
yum remove openldap-servers nss-pam-ldapd and deleted common ldap conf scripts, but still sshd blocks all connections because it can't validate them against a non-existent LDAP server.
