On your client, if its properly binded you should be able to see your
remote mappings ie do this
And see if the user and groupmember information for that user are there.
ashley@gp01:/etc:554> getent group |grep -i ashley
Now that only shows that the ldap lookup / binding is working.
If it isn't then something wrong with your binding, if it is then try
mapping the group information directly. ie edit /etc/ldap.conf and edit
The only other place I think of is that you didn't tell your linux system
to used the LDAP lookup information for groups which is specified in
For unix there three main files / variables which are passwd, shadow and
For nsswitch.conf I've got lookup local information followed by LDAP
information ie in
passwd: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
group: files ldap
Thats all I can think of at the moment.

I'm using FC6 with FDS authentication and running well but can not
show groups name only GID when command 'groups' execute on console.
Sometimes we get confuse when we saw some folder not show group name
id: cannot find name for group ID 10001
Is there any trick how to show group name not gid on konsole.
