Hi Corinna,

Suggestion ...

Replace in csih_use_file_etc() -- see file /usr/share/csih/cygwin-service-installation-helper.sh

grep -Eq "^${file}:.*\<db\>" /etc/nsswitch.conf || use_file=0

grep -Eq "^${file}:[^#]*\<db\>" /etc/nsswitch.conf || use_file=0

Otherwise 'comment' like below will NOT be ignored in file /etc/nsswitch.conf:

passwd: files # db

csih_use_file_etc() is invoked by csih_create_privileged_user(), which is invoked
by install_service() (in file /usr/bin/ssh-host-config).
