Yes it does but my question was oriented functional point of view.

It's ok.
I have retry my first example which works now ! Most probably nscd was
running again but I doubt, next results of « getent group sudo » was
differents so it's certainly a pebkac ;-) Again time wasted raaaahh

I have a last question about getgrent & getpwent primitives : why
theses functions doesn't retrieve data according my configuration in
nsswitch.conf (or again i'm wrong ?)

Here an example :
Assumption : group sudo is in /etc/group (user AAA) & in mysql
database (users BBB, CCC)

nsswitch.conf :
group:          mysql files

getent group | grep sudo (different than getent group sudo which use getgrnam)

Mysql results are a success so why I get files entries ?

Thanks in advance,
