IssueThe nscd-2.12-1.132.el6_5.3.x86_64.rpm package on the SA yum repo (https://smcupdate.emc.com/nw10/rpm/) needs to be updated to nscd-2.12-1.132.el6_5.4.x86_64.rpm. This is preventing customers from installing the nss-pam-ldapd package which is required for some PAM configurations.
Example of failure:

[root@xxxxxx pam_ldap]# yum install nss-pam-ldapd

You may install work-around the problem by running: --skip-broken

You may also work around the problem by running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
CauseThis package fails to install due to a broken dependency introduced by glibc-2.12-1.132.el6_5.4.x86_64.rpm as part of the EL 6.5 update.

2. wget http://vault.centos.org/6.5/updates/x86_64/Packages/nscd-2.12-1.132.el6_5.4.x86_64.rpm
