Yast2 has a good "LDAP Client" configuration, which changes many things,
including /etc/nsswitch.conf
It does NOT appear to do /etc/pam.d/* but most of them have LDAP available
because if is in nsswitch.conf

I already had those packages installed, I edited
/etc/pam.d/system-auth by hand, following the example in this


There is nothing mentioned about nsswitch.conf and when I try to
create a user via smbldap-useradd.pl it works, but I can´t login with
that user.

I understand that this can´t work as long as the login-program doesn´t
use ldap.

Can you point me to what I should change in my setup?

thank you,
