Command "id admin" on OES Linux servers in the test NDS Tree shows details of the Admin user in the Production NDS Tree
Files /etc/nam.conf and /etc/sysconfig/novell/lum shows correct Preferred-LDAP-Server


OES Linux servers in the Test NDS Tree configured as LDAP Client by pointing to one of the production NDS Tree LDAP Server. Setting in the file /etc/ldap.conf (LDAP Client configuration file in a Linux system) has precedence over the NAMCD Daemon configuration file. Either specify correct LDAP server or remove the LDAP Client configuration on the OES Linux server using YaST as follows.
  1. Open a terminal and login to theOES server as user "root"
  2. Launch YaST by the command: yast
  3. Select Network Services | LDAP Client
  4. Either corect "Address of LDAP Servers" or select the option "Do not Use LDAP" and select "Finish"
  5. Stop and restart NAMCD (rcnamd restart) and NSCD (rcnscd restart) Daemons
  6. Execute the command: namconfig cache_refresh
  7. Check again by the command "id admin"
