On a server/client that previously had LDAP enabled, after disabling LDAP the YaST User Management module still keeps asking for a LDAP Server Password


In the YaST User Management module, go to Filter -> Customize filter, deselect LDAP and select Local. Repeat this in the Group Management module.

Alternatively, while YaST is shut down, edit the file /var/lib/YaST/users.ycp and change "ldap" to"local".
