[svlug] LDAP problem (permissions?)

By the way, I have a second machine that uses the same LDAP server in the
same way and everything works on that machine.
So it must be the setup of the client machine somewhere, but I can not find
a difference between the two...
I checked/modified ldap.conf, nsswitch.conf and pam.d/system-auth . Are
there any other files I need to modify to get authentication via LDAP going?
