thanks to your suggestion i realized there weren't, so i managed to make
them available thorugh nsswitch and pam files and now all works.
the reason i didn't add that entries was because i thought there were
to let the linux system use as users, people in LDAP (like Nis do). By
reading again all the tutorial i realized it was necessary to let the
system "sync" with the ldap.
