In addition to this error I am getting the following errors with the
chfn/chsh PERL scripts which is probably related!
Lines 64 and 86 are the same method being called in the two scripts:

$ldap->bind(%bindargs) or die "unable to bind to ldap server: $@";



[root@ldapclnt1 pam_ldap-66]# ./chsh test
Password:
Can't call method "bind" on an undefined value at ./chsh line 64, <STDIN>
chunk 1.
[root@ldapclnt1 pam_ldap-66]# ./chfn test
Password:
Can't call method "bind" on an undefined value at ./chfn line 86, <STDIN>
chunk 1.
[root@ldapclnt1 pam_ldap-66]# 


Are these scripts necessary seeing as pam_ldap provides chfn/chsh files
for the /etc/pam.d directory so the usual chfn/chsh commands work and if
so how can I get them to work? I keep getting the following errors!

chsh: can only change local entries; use ypchsh instead.
chfn: can only change local entries; use ypchfn instead.


Other commands like 'finger' work fine!
