[K12OSN] re: "UNIX group resolution from LDAP" (Peter Hartmann)

It sounds to me like you have at least two problems, and I can try to
help with one right off the bat.

It sounds like your machine isn't correctly configured to be an LDAP
client of its own LDAP server.

For FC, run 'authconfig' and make sure you're using LDAP and that the
LDAP info (server, DN, etc.) are correct.

For Ubuntu, I reommend using the smbldap-installer and running just
"./smbldap ldapclient". It'll ask you the questions and put stuff in
the right config files for you.
