nsswitch__database_map

YAML dictionary which defines the mapping between NSS databases and NSS services for all hosts in Ansible inventory.

nsswitch__database_map: {}
nsswitch__group_database_map

YAML dictionary which defines the mapping between NSS databases and NSS services for hosts in specific Ansible inventory group.

nsswitch__group_database_map: {}
nsswitch__host_database_map

YAML dictionary which defines the mapping between NSS databases and NSS services for specific hosts in Ansible inventory.
