Yes, that helped me to find the mistake. The problem was indeed the nss 
lookup for the ID's. I use Opensolaris and there it is some difference 
to Linux.
Solaris uses an ldap provided profile for configuring local ldap 
authentication (objectclass: DUAConfigProfile).

The default passwd lookup is "ou=people,<ldap_base>" since it is created 
during idsconfig (Sun One DS)
To change this you have to add

serviceSearchDescriptor: passwd:ou=whatever,<ldap_base>?sub

to the ldap profile.

Thank you and best regards!
