We need to get user information from the LDAP server and authenticate against it. The following set up the basic configuration:

ldapclient manual -a authenticationMethod=none \
-a defaultSearchBase=dc=tardis,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk \
-a defaultServerList= \
-a serviceAuthenticationMethod=pam_ldap:simple

It appears that specifying the server as a host name isn't good enough; not sure why...

You then need to edit /etc/pam.conf to use the pam_ldap module. Entries such as

other   auth required  


other   auth binding   server_policy
other   auth required 

More information on the Sun directory guide and the ldapclient and pam_ldap manual pages.
