Hi Michael,

The command mentioned by you is running fine and it doesn't show any error.

That means that simple bind works fine.

By stating "I am able to login to the server", I meant that I am able to establish an ssh session (via putty) with the server by providing user id and password. In that case, I don't really understand the error while logging in by that user id.

Thanks for your support.

What does "I am able to login to the server" mean exactly. Did you test
with ldapwhoami -x -D <bind-DN of asimananda> -W whether simple bind works?

Looks like an setup error in your PAM setup. Check the ldap.conf related
to the pam_ldap module. I don't know Ubuntu so I can't help here.

Ciao, Michael.
