Default nsswitch.conf changes

Hi,

I changed all my nsswitch.conf entries to point to files, previously
it was set to "files nis". However when I ssh in it still takes a long
time to authenticate. Is there a service I need to restart e.g. pam
etc? .... I'll reboot as a last resort but I thought it was an
interesting problem.

Thanks
Dan

grep hosts /etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns

(almost certainly bound to help)

Have you tried restarting rpcidmapd, nslcd or nscd? (depending on what
you have running to make your name mappings -- most likely just rpcidmapd)

Just to state the obvious, whenever I've had this problem, it was
almost always because I misspelled the first entry in my list of DNS
servers in resolv.conf *
