Description Harald Wagener 2002-12-19 08:06:24 EST
Description of problem:

nss_ldap (and pam_ldap) uses another default path for the ldap.conf
configuration file than the openldap packages

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nss_ldap-198-3

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install openldap-servers, nss_ldap and configure /etc/nsswitch.conf like
 groups ldap files
 
2. add group information to the ldap server pointed at in /etc/openldap/ldap.conf

3. check existence of group entry using 'ldapsearch'
    
4. lookup user info using unix commands, i.e. 'id <username>'


Actual results: group info is not available via the name service switch as
nss_ldap.so does not find the proper configuration file.

Expected results: nss should use the central ldap configuration file, providing
full information


Additional info: IMHO, the default location/filename should not be
/etc/ldap.conf, but something like /etc/nss_ldap.conf or /etc/nss_ldap/ldap.conf
