The LDAP authentication seems not working on my ubuntu 14.04.

getent passwd returns all the LDAP users, which means it is successfully connected to the LDAP server and see all the user information.

However, getent passwd USERNAME returns nothing, even though USERNAME is one of the LDAP users.

The error message in /var/log/auth.log is No passwd entry for user USERNAME.

Any thoughts?


I've found the solution. After I restarted nscd (not nslcd), it works.
