As the title says. For some reason shadow.service failed consistently - check shadow.log (attached). It it possibly some leftover config after ceph removal.

Additional info:
* package version(s): shadow 4.11.1-3
* config and/or log files etc.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  shadow.service works as it should. pwck errors on an inconsistent user setup after the removal of ceph.

@kgizdov: Ahh, now I understand what you meant :)

So, this is basically pwck [1] complaining about the user's home not existing anymore (likely because the systemd-tmpfiles.d integration for ceph is now gone from your system).
The service is there to point out to the user, that they need to fix something in their setup (e.g. remove a user).
