Re: Authentification from pam_ldap against Lotus Notes/Customer

It certainly sounds as though this is working ok, and you've done everything
that I can think of. One thing I'd try first is to perform the bind with
an ldapsearch. Can you try

  ldapsearch -x -LLL -h dominoserver -b '' -D 'cn=Christoph Seider o=haj' -W uid=cseider

(note that I've given an empty search base. you could also use `-b o=haj', but
 there were Domino versions that would crap out on that...)

If that works, then ... I don't know what is wrong. Try it.
