In my scripts, that flushes the chains (should be tables by now?).

All that means nss_ldap and the rest are working alright, but pam_ldap
is failing.

Check you slapd permissions and Make sure you have granted 'auth' to
* or to those connections coming from the client machine.

Otherwise, this could be a 7.2 bug.

Check your /var/log/slapd to see if it is trying to BIND, how, and
what is the result of it.

Don't nag Nalin directly, go to http://bugzilla.redhat.com, check if
there is something like that reported or add your own entry if not.

But check the logs first...


P.S. I have deleted form the recipient list both Nalin and your own
     mci-unix list that rejects my messages.
