LDAP authentication works fine, passwd gives error

When I log in as a user and attemtp the passwd command, however, I get the following:
[tim@linux03 ~]$ passwd
Changing password for user tim.

passwd: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
group: files ldap
bootparams: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
protocols: files ldap
services: files ldap
netgroup: files ldap
automount: files ldap
aliases: files nisplus
here's my ldap.conf:
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone advise?
