Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've a Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 and a Server 12.04.

I want to store all Users and Groups on the Server and then login on the Client with them. (Like an AD on Windows)

I though about a LDAP-Server. I went through this Documentation. Now the LDAP-Server works.(tested with a ldapsearch)

The problem is when i want to login the client with the LDAP-Server after this Didn't work. The Client didn't know the user.

Have i forgotten something, where is my mistake? Are there any other/better solutions?
