Hi,
I have followed this tutorial to http://www.grennan.com/ldap-HOWTO.html setup ldap server.i have followed everything till  6.1 Migrating /etc/passwd and /etc/group.

now i am trying to add client to ldap server.

in client pc, i have changed necessary options at  
/etc/ldap.conf such  as
host 192.168.2.116
base dc =mydomain.local,dc=com
pam_password Crypt ( Attm : in ldap server i create user called test, and  then used command passwd test1 to create password, is  this Crypt ??)


then : /etc/openldap/ldap.con : base dc=mydomain, dc=com
url ldap://192.168.2.116

then /etc/nsswitch
passwd  files ldap
shadow files ldap
group files ldap

now when i am trying to connect to ldap server from client pc by using using test

check you can access port 389 on the ldap server from the client server

telnet 192.168.2.116 389

I am such an idot!!!!!
shame on me!!

i always tell every one to check port!! and i forgot.

i used iptables --flush, so after that it works
but why its saying : no directory /home/user1!
loggin with home ="/"
you dont have to answer it here. i will ask in another question
but if you can give me a clue that would be realy helpful

Every user has a home directory specified.
Normally this would be in /etc/passwd
if you have migrated that file to ldap then you need to check it in there.
Start by checking there is a directory for the user and it has the right access privs
