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 am trying to set up slapd so that it provides the same functions as NIS(same uids across machines, same passwords but that isn't important as they use publickey anyway, network is trusted) and I can sucessfully get the user list with ldapsearch, using:
ldapsearch -x -b "dc=testserver"
This dumps the passwd, as intended.
However I can't use ssh to get into the machine. There is the following error message:
pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user "uid=user01,dc=testserver" (Server is unwilling to perform)
The following slapd.conf is being used:
...(default things) ...
access to * by * read
Why is the server not willing to perform? I should only get that error if I would try to write. libnss_ldap is installed.
Server is firewalled, but not on that interface.
SSH is chrooted using libpam_chroot, however that isn't the problem as it doesn't get to the session part, where the chroot is done.
LDAP version is 3.
Although I have created and used successfully publickey auth in localhost I can't login to the NFS mounted home directory of user, as it asks for a password and fails with the above message.
