NAME
       nslcd - local LDAP name service daemon

SYNOPSIS
       nslcd [options]

DESCRIPTION
       nslcd  is  a  daemon that will do LDAP queries for local	processes that
       want to do user,	group and other	naming lookups (NSS) or	 do  user  au-
       thentication, authorisation or password modification (PAM).

       nslcd is	configured through a configuration file	(see nslcd.conf(5)).

       See the included	README for information on configuring the LDAP server.

OPTIONS
       nslcd accepts the following options:

       -c, --check
	      Check  if	 the daemon is running.	 This causes nslcd to return 0
	      if the daemon is already running and 1 if	it is not.

       -d, --debug
	      Enable debugging mode.  nslcd will not put itself	in  the	 back-
	      ground  and  sends verbose debugging info	to stderr.  nslcd will
	      handle connections as usual.  This option	is for debugging  pur-
	      poses  only.  Specify this option	multiple times to also include
	      more detailed logging from the LDAP library.

       -n, --nofork
	      Do not fork or daemonise and run nslcd in	the foreground.

       --help Display short help and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Output version information and exit.

SIGNALS
       SIGTERM/SIGINT
	      Cancel any running queries and exit.

       SIGUSR1
	      Cause nslcd to retry any failing connections to the LDAP server,
	      regardless  of  the  reconnect_sleeptime and reconnect_retrytime
	      options.

FILES
       /etc/nslcd.conf - the configuration file	(see nslcd.conf(5))

SEE ALSO
