Well, it should. What happens is this: After asking the non-AD LDAP
server for the account name, it asks the account fetching algorithm for
that name from scratch. This depends on the /etc/nsswitch.conf
settings, of course (*). Assuming "passwd: files db", it first checks
the local /etc/passwd file for a matching entry for that account name,
then the OS, preferring AD on an AD member machine, then local SAM.
In my scenario there’s nothing in /etc/passwd, AD, or SAM for most users, but they are all available from LDAP.
I’d like it to act as if there was something in /etc/passwd. It’s got all the information it needs to generate an /etc/passwd entry from LDAP.
nsswitch is files db, or missing, which should default to files db.
