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.

I'm trying to get a fedora core 5 box authenticated against an active directory server in our company. I've followed examples from several sources and still can not get a proper response from ldapsearch or getent.
The AD server is a 2k3 box, sp1, with ms SFU 3.5 running on the system. A generic user for binding has been created.
I can use ldap browser\editor v2.8.2 with the same credentials on the fedora machine to connect to and browse the directory, however, when I try a simple 'ldapsearch -x ""' this is the response I get:
# extended LDIF
# base <> with scope subtree
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# search result
result: 1 Operations error

ration a successful bind must be completed on the connection., data 0, vece
# numResponses: 1
For simplicity, I'm starting with a stripped down ldap.conf in /etc/openldap that includes the following:
and then entering the passwd when prompted. This gets me the expected responses, which leaves me wondering why it's not reading it from the file?
perms on /etc/openldap/ldap.conf are 0644 and the directory is 0755. I'm guessing that it can read at least some of the file if it's getting the host out of there since I'm not passing that on the command line.
I tried with just the username in the binddn and I'm still getting the same response: no search results returned without the complete command line posted earlier. getent passwd <username> returns nothing either, although it takes a few minutes for it to complete. (exit code returned from getent is 2)
By the way, shortening basedn and the binddn on the command line to just the user also works:
