That's true.  However, using it purely as a authentication db for other
services might work, because our users get /sbin/nologin as their shell
and are chrooted to distinct home dirs for ftp,etc..

Does anyone know if it is possible to use ldapsam with /etc/passwd
entries if you are also using ldap for posixaccount lookups?

Sure, but you can kiss away all pretenses of file security between

It's easy.  But very unwise.  I highly doubt the original poster wants
of his users to have the same security contexts with respect to file
