Problems installing LDAP Client on CentOS 5.1


Hello,

I am having a problem with a client server trying to authenticate with the LDAP server. We have other clients that access the LDAP server just fine. This is a new client I'm working with. Here is what I have done so far.

I installed the following packages:
openldap, openldap_clients, auth_ldap, nss_ldap

I modified the /etc/openldap/ldap.conf and /etc/ldap.conf files:

/etc/ldap.conf

Code:
base dc=domain,dc=net
.
.
uri ldap://<IP Address>/
ssl no
tls_cacertdir /etc/openldap/cacerts
pam_password md5
/etc/openldap/ldap.conf

Code:
URI ldap://<IP Address>/
BASE dc=domain,dc=net
TLS_CACERTDIR /etc/openldap/cacerts
/etc/nsswitch.conf

Code:
passwd:     files ldap
shadow:     files ldap
group:      files ldap
.
.
netgroup:   files ldap
.
automount:  files ldap
/etc/sysconfig/authconfig

Code:
USELDAPAUTH=yes
I am still having problems after all these changes. I keep getting access denied when I try to log in with my LDAP username/password. My SELinux level is set to permissive also.

does getent passwd/group show you the accounts?
