Probably.  Stop nscd if you have it running "service nscd stop" /
"rcnscd stop" and do an "id test10" - if that says "No such user" you're
nss_ldap isn't setup correctly.   pam/nss questions are better on the
ldap at umich.edu list
<https://listserver.itd.umich.edu/cgi-bin/lyris.pl?enter=ldap> and/or
the nssldap at palm.com list (send "subscribe nssldap" to
majordomo at padl.com).
