I have some trouble with the installation of the LDAP client on Ubuntu Linux.
I followed the instructions as described the articles below.
Although I followed the steps in the article my Ubuntu keeps running exactly
as before, authenticating without using LDAP. Problem is that I don't have
a clue what's happening. So any suggestions on what files to check or what
commands to run to test things are appreciated.
What I do know about this configuration problem is:
* The LDAP server is up and running, it's usable from another application
* I don't see any incoming traces when I run slapd in full debug mode
and try some actions like rebooting or getent passwd from the client
* The getent passwd <username> test as described in article .2 fails
So likely something went wrong with the configuration of
$ apt-get install libpam-ldap libnss-ldap
Is there a way I can rerun the installer so that I can verify the configuration
data I entered. What other things should I try ?
All suggestions apprectiated.
