Speaking of ldap....

Ghu, do I *loathe* openldap. Talk about amateur code - they can't even give error messages some times, much less usefull ones.

I've had an openldap server running for a year. A few weeks back, I enabled it on a new server we racked. Everything was fine, and users could log in.

Then, somewhere in maybe the last week, something happened. I have no clue, but suddenly my user can't log in. When I go to the box as root, and try to su - to either my user's account, or my own, I get "user does not exist".

We log in on all our other servers. Looking at Webmin on this box, when I go to ldap users and groups, I see everyone. I can telnet to the ldap server, port 389 (I don't have it set up secure - it's in our "lab") with no problem.

pam's /etc/pam.d/system-auth is fine, and says to check ldap before /etc/passwd.

Anyone have any ideas?
