Can't su to LDAP user
I am running a LDAP Server on CentOS 5.4. I configured it to work with Samba. My problem is that I can't join a Windows PC to my created domain, as it says the user wouldn't exist.
From hunting down the problem, I found that getent passwd shows me my user correctly. ldapsearch also finds my user. Now once I try to su to this user, it gives me the error that the user would not exist.
Does anybody have an idea what might be going on here? I found a similar post here where the problem was conflicting uid numbers. But I havent found any double uids or gids. Is this a problem with PAM?
I've been working on this issue for two weeks now.... so any help would be appreciated
