Trouble with ldap auth on linux. nss_ldap, padl, ...
Been banging my head over this for 24 hours now, so i have to come to the forums :). I've done several implementations of ldap auth with different directories, but this one is a little "special".

Hosts / Clients:
SuSE 9, 10
CentOS,RHEL,OracleLinux, 4,5
Some others as well.

Connecting to Active Directory on win2k3. This does NOT have the R2 schema. I'll spare the details as to why, but for now I need to use some non-standard attributes.

Current problem i have right now, is that i can see the shadow entries, but i can't see the passwd entries.
ie: getent shadow works, but getent passwd doesn't show my ldap users.

I used tcpdump, and I found that when i run getent passwd there is a filter added to the query that i wasn't expecting.

Filter: (&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=pcap))

Where is this "sAMAccountName=pcap" coming from?

ldap.conf posted below.

was looking in the wrong place.

After carefully reading the output from tcpdump, I realized i forgot to map loginShell, and more importantly uidNumber.

All is well now.
