This is a Client install for a Debian based system.

There is a current bug with the Ldap configuration that looks for the group nvram to correct this problem create the group nvram on the client machine.

Next install the required packages

Once the packages start being unpacked you will see a questions:

Next we need to modify a couple different files

#vi /etc/libnss-ldap.conf

#vi /etc/libnss-ldap.secret

#vi /etc/pam_ldap.conf

#vi /etc/pam_ldap.secret

pam configuration files need to be modfied a bit like:

#vi /etc/pam.d/common-account

#vi /etc/pam.d/common-auth

#vi /etc/pam.d/common-password

#vi /etc/pam.d/common-session

Finally, let's edit nsswitch so the system will be able to switch from local system authentication to ldap authentication.

# vim /etc/nsswitch.conf

With everything entered correctly you should have a working LDAP Client :)
