Description of problem:
nss_ldap successfully retrieves data from MS ADS using getpwnam() which would indicate that nsswitch.conf and ldap.conf are ok.
When authconfig has setup system-auth file, sshd fails to find user.  The query being passed to LDAP is looking for NOUSER.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run authconfig and select LDAP
2. Attempt ssh to localhost


Actual Results:  Login declined, invalid user.

Comment 5 Glen Eustace 2004-01-29 20:26:39 EST
This not a bug, running sshd in debug showed that the shell for the 
user in ldap was invalid on the system running sshd. Using a user 
that has a valid shell for the system concerned works fine.
