Here is my /etc/nsswitch.conf

I didn't setup any dns and the nsswitch.  It comes by default only.

# These are the defaults in libc
group:          compat
group_compat:   nis
hosts:          dns files
netgroup:       files [notfound=return] nis
networks:       files
passwd:         compat
passwd_compat:  nis
shells:         files
