Re: i don't find a new user added in getent passwd list

so, there is a little problem.

i was checking with ldapsearch and the answer was
"ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)"

i didn't understand the cause.
i checked about pid of openldap and there wasn't it.
in slapd.conf it has to be in /var/run/slapd/slapd.pid but this file wasn't there.
so i went in /var/lib/ldap/ to check DB_CONFIG and it's the follow:

set_cachesize 0 2097152 0
set_lk_max_objects 1500
set_lk_max_locks 1500
set_lk_max_lockers 1500


this morning i deleted old databases with this command:

rm __db.* *.bdb log.*

but i didn't touch DB_CONFIG.

now am trying to restore it but, could you explain the causes of this?

Hi, have you tried using ldapsearch to see if its an issue with nss/pam
or an issue with ldap?

I would suggest that your openldap environment is probably working fine
(as you seem to have been able to perform the necessary ldapadds) and
its probably nss/pam that need fixing.

i started to work with posixAccount objectClass.

i installed libnss-ldap on debian squeeze server. i configured it during
install time and i modified nsswitch.conf as follow:

passwd    files ldap
group       files ldap
shadow    files ldap

and i didn't modify the remains lines.

i succesfully added a structure.ldif file as follow

#the root of the directory
dn: dc=amahoro,dc=bi
dc: amahoro
o: amahoro.bi
objectClass: top
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organization

#subtree for the administrators
dn: cn=Administrators,dc=amahoro,dc=bi
cn: Administrators
gidNumber: 100
objectClass: posixGroup

i succesfully added a administrators.ldif file as follow:

#Stefano Malini
dn: uid=name,cn=Administrators,dc=amahoro,dc=bi
cn: Administrators
uid: name
uidNumber: 100
homeDirectory: /home/name/
#Name info
cn: Name Surname
sn: Surname
givenName: Name
displayName: Name Surname
#Work info
title: System Administrator
mail: address@mail
userPassword: {SSHA}vB/RyxNdsVkwc9dDxEuS/sIGESBAkzTw
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: inetOrgPerson

Now, with getent command-line there is not this user. Why?
