    I tried by installing pam_ldap module and configuring ldap.conf file but still allowing access to the hosts not mentioned in host attribute. All the user information is available on the client node not specified in the host attribute of that user (checked by firing $getent passwd) .

    What is desired is on such client (not specified in host attribute of <user-name>) nodes, $su <user-name> should show su: <user-name> does not exist.

    Which of the services in /etc/pam.d need to be modified for proper user authorization?
