    [ The following text is in the "ISO-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "ISO-8859-10" character set.  ]
    [ Some special characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]

For convenience, we are tring to switch from using password files on our
execute notes to using db files.

So our nsswitch.conf files look like:
passwd:     files db
shadow:     files db
group:      files db

This doesn't seem to be working for us. The error looks like:
Can't get password entry for "gjenkins". Either the user does not exist
or NIS error!

So .. what can we do about this?
