Hello List

Thanks for all replies 
And sorry for my late reply... I got busy with development problems... But
now I'm back to network

As I understand...
Nss is a shared subsystem in *NIX
As it is shared it can be used be EVERY service / subsystem
As NSS doesn't reload shwared library I should restart every service using

So far so good.
BUT I'm using NSS tu authenticate login, even to console. And I'd preferr
NOT TO reboot, but to restart service.

How can I restart the login subsystem (i.e. VTI) without rebooting ?
Every other services was already restarted (i.d. postfix dovecot samba
apache ftp proxy squid....)

Thanks for every Hint!
