I have switched my virtual machine, to use a ldap server for authentication with sssd. I assumed with this setup I will not need to use local passwords anymore, as i can login with ldap authentication. But it seems that lightdm and it's background service accounts-daemon do not show users in the greeter, which do not have a shadow password set. If the shadow password is set, the user is shown in the user list in the greeter. If there is no shadow password the greeter doesn't show the user.
This seems to depends on the "accounts-daemon", which is used by lightdm to get its userlist.
shows that my user is skipped as long as the user doesn't have a shadow password
How can i make accounts-daemon show all users, which only happen to have not a shadowpassword. I do not like the idea to create "random" local passwords.
Or can I switch off accounts.daemon for lightdm?
