He did do a good write-up. :-)

Yes.  That is definitely true.

But, but, but, internal has been shutdown since November!  That is a
very long time for this to have been hanging out.

That is the /etc/libnss-mysql.cfg and /etc/libnss-mysql-root.cfg
files.  But how could they have still be pointing to the old internal?
The database on internal has been shutdown since November and the
machine itself since January.  But certainly if it was pointing there
than that would have been a showstopper problem.

I am fearful of rebooting download but I am good with restarting the
daemons there.  I just freed up to be able to work on this for a bit.
I will restart things there.

Thanks Assaf!  Good debugging work!
