Hi All,

I've seen several threads on this topic but none quite seem to match the situation here. I have a working OpenLDAP server and several clients which work happily together for login authentication. Now I'm trying to add a new client to the pool but can't get getent to return the users so they don't appear on the login screen.

The following work fine :
ldapsearch -x -h wagner uid=martin
ldapsearch -D "cn=admin,dc=cmri,dc=hey,dc=nhs,dc=uk" -W -h wagner uid=martin
getent passwd martin
returns nothing.

I have nslcd installed and that reports the following after the getent command:
nslcd: [8b4567] DEBUG: connection from pid=3155 uid=0 gid=0

nslcd: [8b4567] no available LDAP server found
More or less the same happens if binddn & bindpw are absent from nslcd.conf.

Can anybody suggest a fix for this?

All help gratefully appreciated.
