Re: unix groups problem


i use rh 6.2/openldap1.2.11-1/nss_ldap155/pam_ldap118
as well as rh 7.1/openldap2.0.7/nss_ldap155/pam_Ldap118.

both work fine with multiple groups. an id call returns all
groups the user is member of and i can change between
the groups without password.

have you added the ldap source to the groups database in
