I take it you mean that when 'getent passwd auser' is run on the DC, it
doesn't produce any output and there isn't anything on the DC wiki page
to tell me how to get it work.

Go and have another read of the DC wiki page:


The information was always there, there just wasn't anything linking
the DC page to it.

You can get the data in pretty much the same way.
