First of all, you have two group suffix directives, when you should only
have one.  Beyond that, they are both incorrect, along with the user and
machine suffixes.

The group suffix, along with machine suffix, user suffix, etc are additive
to the ldap suffix.  Your config should look something like this:

       ldap group suffix = ou=group
       ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap
       ldap machine suffix = ou=people
       ldap suffix = dc=zahidtractor,dc=com

This causes the context of the group to be ou=group,dc=zahidtractor,dc=com.

Also, the Machines and Users must be stored in the same OU.  It appears that
you have users stored in one OU and Computers stored in another OU.  I
don't believe this is supported right now.  (I believe this is because PAM
will only search one OU for a UNIX user instead of multiples.)

Please reply to this thread instead of my email address.

Happy Holidays!
