Re: Trouble Installing LDAP Client On Ubuntu Linux

I have some trouble with the installation of the LDAP client on Ubuntu
I followed the instructions as described the articles below.
Although I followed the steps in the article my Ubuntu keeps running
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
* 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
data I entered. What other things should I try ?
All suggestions apprectiated.
I know next to nothing about Ubuntu except that it's derived from
Debian. However, both pam_ldap and nss_ldap need correctly configured
configuration files. How to do this would probably be documented in your
standard documentation. Otherwise your vendor forums would probably be
the right place.
