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.

Heh. Step 1: "yum install telnet" (These test hosts are supposed to mimic a secure environment... ;-)
Port 389 gets responses. Port 636 refuses connections. Which is consistent with my not bothering to set up ldap+tls.
I'm reasonably sure I'm missing a setting on the clients, somewhere. At least as far as getent is concerned. If I can get getent passwd working on this one host that will allow forward progress. Then, the ldapsearch weirdness becomes a back-burner item.
And a silly question: have you tried running your searches w/o the '-n'?
Okay, I knew I was an idiot. This new workstation is receiving good output for ldapsearch. Now that I've demonstrated that a connection to the ldap servers is functional, I have to figure out why getent won't show me the additional users.
[root@hmiwks04 ~]# ldapsearch -vx -H ldap://rhdirsrv1:389 -D uid=admin,ou=administrators,ou=topologymanagement,o=netscaperoot -W -b ou=people,dc=fed,dc=mtr | grep ^dn:
ldap_initialize( ldap://rhdirsrv1:389 )
Enter LDAP Password:

[root@hmiwks04 ~]# getent passwd

(The first five test users were a tester's idea. The last four are mine. Bonus points for guessing the movie inspiration...)
