So, yes, i have configured this file already:
passwd: compat ldap
shadow: compat ldap
group:   compat ldap

I have downloaded the libnss-ldap file too but it's the same...

I can't make it to work...

If i try to create a posixAccount in phpLDAPadmin it show me the error:
"Could not add the object to the LDAP server.

LDAP said: Object class violation
Description: You tried to perform an operation that would cause an 
undefined attribute to exist or that would remove a required attribute, 
given the current list of ObjectClasses. This can also occur if you do 
not specify a structural objectClass when creating an entry, or if you 
specify more than one structural objectClass."

And the rare is, when i create the account with smbldap-useradd -m 
testuser it create the home directory at /home/testuser but i don't know 
why it doesn't create a uid....

thanks for your help

best regards.
