The following sections describe how you can customize the LDAP client environment.
You can change any of the services, but be careful, because if the data is not populated on the server for the service specified, things will stop working. Also, in some cases files may not be set up by default.
You can modify the name service switch to customize where each naming service accesses its information. See Managing the Name Service Switch.
If you want to enable DNS, see How to Enable a DNS Client. If per-user authentication is used, the sasl/GSSAPI and Kerberos mechanisms expect the DNS naming service to be configured and enabled.
