    Karmic LDAP authentication

    I have a Karmic server with LDAP on it. I am trying to authenticate a (second computer) Karmic desktop to it. I am quite new at LDAP, so forgive my lack of proper knowledge.

    On my desktop I have installed LDAP Administration Tool (LAM) and it can "see" my LDAP server at the proper ip address.

    I find that most of the documentation I have found is not current enough to apply to Karmic. (Something about "As of pam 1.0.1-6" appears in all the config file notes.) Apparently Karmic authentication is updated and different from all past Ubuntu versions.

    My auth.log file has many entries of "nss_ldap: could not connect to any LDAP server as (null) - Can't contact LDAP server" and "nss_ldap: failed to bind to LDAP server ldapi:/// Can't contact LDAP server".

    Where is Karmic documentation regarding LDAP authentication?

    My server appears to be working properly but, what do I know, I am a newbie at LDAP?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    On your client machine, open /etc/ldap.conf and change your setting

    # Another way to specify your LDAP server is to provide an
    uri ldapi:///


    # Another way to specify your LDAP server is to provide an

    See if that works for you.
