Pam Authentication failure

I am working with Centos 7 trying to authenticate using open LDAP.

LDAP appears to be working but I am unable to authenticate my LDAP user account with pam. /etc/pam.d

example: as root in /etc/pam.d

runuser userx (works fine) I become userx

su -l(prompts me for userx password)

enter userx password (authentication failure)

cat /etc/var/log/secure
su: pam_succeed_if(su-l:auth): requirement "uid>= 1000 not meet by user "root"

ANY suggestion??????

You may have to look into selinux and the pam file not the directory for specific entries.

it is always better to post the content of pam file in such cases.
