1) In your test environment, did the clients log in correctly?

2) I know almost zero about using LDAP. Sorry.

3) If it appears that the clients are trying to log in to the wrong

it appears I was incorrect to suggest editing


to point the clients to a server other than the default at installation.

Although it works, it's the hard way to do something.

Use the option LDM_SERVER in lts.conf to tell the clients the ip address
of the server they should connect to.  Again, apologies. I forget how
much I've forgotten. 
(Editing ltsp-client-launch, though, does eliminate the need to set
LDM_SERVER if you are using an IP range other than the default
