Subject: Re: Fedora LDAP authentication failure
Don't have the answer to your questions, but did you check the earlier post yesterday? There was a nice howto for setting up centralized authentication.
Hope it helps you,

I'm at my wits end attempting to configure LDAP authentication on my Fedora
2 server. I'm not new to Linux, but am new to directory management.
Running debugs on slapd returns positive information when GQ is used to
browse/change the directory, but when I attempt to login via console with
any user other than root results in no contact with the LDAP server. Root
authenticates OK, but not via LDAP.
OS=Fedora Core 2, fully updated via APT/Synaptic.
Running current updates of openldap et al, nss_ldap, pam, and openssl.
My LDAP server is working and searchable/writable locally using either GQ or
standard openldap tools. I have used the tools 'authconfig' and
'system-config-authentication' to enable LDAP authentication and manually
modified 'nsswitch.conf', and '/etc/pam.d/login and /etc/pam.d/system-auth'.
It appears that PAM is not contacting the LDAP server for authentication.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to why this may be? I know this is a very
open question, but I've struggled with this for about a week and spent
several days searching the internet for answers. I have followed many
HOW-TO's and rebuilt my LDAP directory about a dozen times. It appears the
LDAP server is working fine, but no requests are being made from login to
the LDAP server.
