After cache timeout 'getent passwd' only returns local users (defined in /etc/passwd).

All posix user tools works, and file system rights are working.


Restart of namcd:

# rcnamcd restart

Will repopulate and getent will return the right information.

The issue is solved with novell-lum- and later.
