Ooops, I had 0644 for  /etc/ldap.secret. May it be the problem? I have to wait 
monday for having access to XP machines, now I only can get ssh access.

I can not understand why, if I copy the user data to /etc/passwd from ldap, 
(not /etc/shadow ) the user can log in, and when I delete the user 
from /etc/passwd I get a getpwnam failure. But I can use usrmgr.exe and 
smbclient works  with the user data in ldap only, with no warning.

I have kerberos running and have a DNS sever (with AD zones) in the same linux 

Thank you
