On our network we have our sudoers stored in LDAP. This works fine on the CentOS 5.4 clients by placing into /etc/ldap.conf

(setting this setting to just 'ldap' instead of 'files ldap' does not render the machine unbootable as happens if you set passwd and group this way).
However I am attempting to set this up on an Ubuntu 9.10 client and getting no joy so far. I have the same settings in /etc/ldap.conf and /etc/nsswitch.conf and cannot get sudoers to work.
I have 10.10 on my laptop and there is a separate ldap version of sudo: sudo- ldap.
