From your responded, I couldn't understand what was changed before the issue happened.
Did you edit nsswitch.conf ?
Did you reconfigure nscd ? If yes, is it working ?
Provide the journal of it:

Code: Select all

 journalctl -u nscd.service | tail -n 25

Issue started in last July. I took chair in August. What was background picture. Nobody knows as well.

Did you edit nsswitch.conf ?
No.
Did you reconfigure nscd ? If yes, is it working ?
Nscd was missing on this host. I just installed it. Given #systemctl reboot. But no luck.
Provide the journal of it:
