hi all!

i am sort of ldap novice, so please if someone could tell me what am i doing wrong.

have over 10 PCs on opensuse working with the same ldap server using host resolution, users and autofs mounts. but when i tried to set up ubuntu server 12.10 with autofs i get following output (host resolution on the same machine works fine):
Code:
Feb 20 20:33:54 term03 automount[26137]: Starting automounter version 5.0.6, master map nisMapName=auto.master,ou=autofs,dc=cpsag,dc=ch
Feb 20 20:33:54 term03 automount[26137]: using kernel protocol version 5.02

Feb 20 20:33:54 term03 automount[26137]: no mounts in table
here is the ldif dump from the server for autofs part:

and the config of the client machine:

Code:
MASTER_MAP_NAME="nisMapName=auto.master,ou=autofs,dc=cpsag,dc=ch"
TIMEOUT=300
NEGATIVE_TIMEOUT=20
BROWSE_MODE="yes"
MOUNT_NFS_DEFAULT_PROTOCOL=4
APPEND_OPTIONS="yes"
LOGGING="debug"
LDAP_URI="111.11.11.11"
SEARCH_BASE="ou=autofs,dc=cpsag,dc=ch"
why can it not parse the config?
