RE: migrating passwd from NIS to LDAP

I'm not sure if your problem is similar to what had me confounded but when I
first enabled LDAP, I used to be able to finger and check on my users in the
LDAP database but it would not allow me to ssh in as one of the users. 

Then I changed this line in my /etc/ssh/sshd_config file

PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt yes
(default is no)

Now before you do this make sure you ahve OpenSSH 3.4 or higher running
becos there was bug in PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt before that and it should
not be enabled in versions below OpenSSH 3.4 (unless of-course patched).

This worked for me and enabled pam to talk with ssh daemon then. As I said I
THINK thats ur problem :)

Not  sure  if  sshd is  to  blame,  since  it's  the ssh  client  that
complains, but yes.
