using openldap/nss_ldap/pam module on solaris 2.6


We are trying to use openldap with solaris2.6 to manage users accounts...

We have successfully compiled openldap.
We have successfully compiled a new pam module for authentication using ldap.
We have successfully compiled a new nss_ldap.
We have configured /etc/pam.conf to use the new pam module
We have configured /etc/ldap.conf and /usr/local/etc/slapd.conf
We have configured /etc/nsswitch.conf

After starting the slapd daemon we have added the following three entries into
the ldap database with ldapadd no problem.

dn: dc=jpmorgan,dc=geneva,dc=ch
description: jpmorgan
objectclass: organization
objectclass: dcObject

dn: ou=People,dc=jpmorgan,dc=geneva,dc=ch
description: people
objectclass: person
objectclass: dcObject

dn: uid=ldap,ou=People,dc=jpmorgan,dc=geneva,dc=ch
uid: ldap
cn: LDAP user
objectclass: account
objectclass: posixAccount
objectclass: top
userpassword: {crypt}abcdef
loginshell: /bin/ksh
uidnumber: 1517
gidnumber: 10
homedirectory: /users/ldap
gecos: LDAP user

But we need to add ObjectClass shadowAccount and indeed the correct entries as
specified in RFC2307 yes?

How? forgive me but I do not know X.500 or openldap so well...

And indeed is there another step we have missed out?
