Re: How to add a user with root permission?

The openldap server and the clients were installed following the
instructions here.


On the client, the configuration follows this.


I am just able to follow the configuration steps. But I don't quite
understand how NSS and PAM work. Could anybody point me the right
direction on how to figure out who and when login on the client
servers with authentication using a central openldap server?
