Here is your problem. Add NS_LDAP_AUTH= simple

default is none.  Restart nscd and ldap.client or reboot after you make
this change.

This was exactly the problem.
For those who like to use the ldapclient tool to configure, you need -a authenticationMethod=simple to your command line.
Once you said this it all made sense and I was even able to find the passage in the documentation where it says that the client defaults to "none" authentication (even if you have so diligently given it a proxyDN and a proxyPassword with which to use for authentication).

Now if there was just some good documentation on how to get it working with TLS... http://www.bolthole.com/solaris/LDAP.html is great but it only applies if you are going to use the padl.com nss library and pam module. Anybody gotten this working with Solaris 9's native tools?
