Boot into signle user mode

linux -s

And edit /etc/pam.d/login to remove LDAP

I'm not sure about tool that do this if see yast runes in text mode, if so then select Network Services > Ldap client and disable it.

check nsswitch too

/etc/nsswitch.conf should have 'files' listed first after passwd, shadow, and group:

passwd: files winbind
shadow: files winbind
group: files winbind
