For me default RedHat (7.3 and 8.0) works fine as long as ldap server is available. If not, I had to add pam_localuser module, and in order to make my /etc/ldap.conf pam_filter works I had to remove "user_unknown=ignore" in system-auth account service.

Undoubtedly. But then you get outdated Openldap versions and
configurations that Red Hat chooses for you, without the chance to adapt
as time goes by and new things come along.



I'am not certain I understood what you told me ...
anyway, I keep up to date my openldap clients, with autorpm (http://www.autorpm.org) running on a local redhat mirror in combination with cfengine (http://www.cfengine.org) which is in charge of configuring (editting system-auth file here !).

But why RedHat gives a system-auth file that is not working properly by default ?? who knows ....
