Eventually after weeks of problems with LUM , it seems to be partially
working on OES2 with all patches
No idea which part of changes,edits etc made it so (too many of them)

But not 100% yet

Remote LDAP on NW 6.5 SP6 server

id scerazy
id: scerazy: No such user

Also on GUI login I get the above error (seems that eDir is contacted)

Here are the /etc/pam.d/login, /var/log/messages, dstrace from NW server
