host lookup failing under LDAP

Anyone have experience of using LDAP as a name service, I am having
problems with resolving names, specifically; If I set nsswitch.conf to

hosts: files ldap

and then try to ping /contact any of the machines in our domain they
cannot be found, I have the entries in my LDAP db as:

dn: cn=hostname,ou=Hosts,dc=mydomain,dc=co,dc=uk
objectClass: top
objectClass: ipHost
objectClass: device
cn: hostname
cn: hostname.mydomain.co.uk

the address of my ldap server is in my hosts file so that can be found.
Any pointers anyone??
