LDAP user unable to log into Centos 7

Before I start, I know basics of Linux but not a pro. I am trying to enhance my skill set.
I installed LDAP on Ubuntu 15.0. I managed to authenticate Centos 7 with out TLS. When I type in the command genent passwd I can see LDAP users of server in Centos 7 client computer.
when I try to long into Centos server with LDAP user account, I can see it is recognizing my username and password but not allowing to log in. i.e. it starts logging in, but screen goes blank
when I check the logs in /var/log/secure I am getting the error messages as below
Please note the user name is jeff

centosserver gdm-password]: pam_unix(gdm-password:session): session opened for user jeff by (unknown)(uid=0)

centosserver gdm-launch-environment]: pam_unix(gdm-launch-environment:session): session closed for user gdm

centosserver polkitd[719]: Unregistered Authentication Agent for unix-session:c6 (system bus name :1.150, object path /org/freedesktop/PolicyKit1/AuthenticationAgent, locale en_US.UTF-8) (disconnected from bus)

centosserver gdm-password]: pam_unix(gdm-password:session): session closed for user jeff

centosserver gdm-launch-environment]: pam_unix(gdm-launch-environment:session): session opened for user gdm by (uid=0)

centosserver polkitd[719]: Registered Authentication Agent for unix-session:c7 (system bus name :1.184 [gnome-shell --mode=gdm], object path /org/freedesktop/PolicyKit1/AuthenticationAgent, locale en_US.UTF-8)

Any help is greatly appreciated. I believe it is having issue creating home directory but I am just guessing
