Well this is not the best way to test and check if your ldap server is giving 
the data.

You should try with ldapsearch, for example:

$ ldapsearch -b "dc=domain,dc=com" -D "cn=root,dc=domain,dc=com" -W uid=user1

This is directly related to NSS_LDAP, you should try to debug nss_ldap and 
ldap server, increase debug at the server side and watch if your nss_ldap is 
doing the right query.
