I'm trying to configure lib-nss to use OpenLDAP against my Active
Directory. But I seem to be having lots of problems even getting it to
search properly. I have Samba all properly configured for AD - it's
properly joined to the AD domain, and all seems to be working
fine. Now I'd like to investigate using OpenLDAP to authenticate
against AD.

ldapsearch -v -x -H ldap:// "(objectClass=posixAccount)"

So the question is ... why is it failing to bind?

Because you are trying to do an anonymouns bind, while a simple bind
with a distingished name is required.
man ldapsearch(1)

I did read it. But if I had understood it, I wouldn't have needed to post here. LOL

What I am trying to do, I've since found out, is to get lib_nss working using ldap, as opposed to a full ldap implemtation.
