I have an LDAP server that I can use for authentication. On this server
I can authenticate as these users locally and ldapsearch them, whatever.
On any of the LDAP clients, however, I can see them using an
ldapsearch, but an id or su will return no such user.
Now, I'm pretty sure that this must be an NSS or PAM problem, but
files on the clients and the server seem to be configured the same. I
can't seem to pinpoint exactly what is wrong. Any suggestions?
The "id" command uses NSS. Check your NSS setup. Since you chose not to
show any configuration files, aiding you will be only guesswork.
By the way, searching for "ldap nss pam howto" yields about 1.2 million
hits on Google.
