Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It means that AIX is talking to LDAP, but is not finding some things it expects (users & groups!).
Now all you should need to do is modify '/etc/security/ldap/ldap.cfg' (on your AIX box) to tell it where to look for these things in your directory.
Going back to my previous example, if my base DN is 'dc=mydomain' and under that I have my list of users in 'ou=users,dc=mydomain' and my groups in 'ou=groups,dc=mydomain', I'd have to change the following lines in ldap.cfg:

It would be nice if it automatically fills in a unique UID and GID.
Also I'm struggling with the auto creation of home dirs under AIX. I have a NFS share on the Directory Server which is exported to the AIX client. Tried to get pam_mkuserhome working but with no success. Grabbed some info from here: http://blog.maniac.nl/setting-up-lda...ients/#homedir
Maybe you have more experience with auto home dir creation??
