In my experience, yast does a very good job of setting up
LDAP on a SLES box, tieing everything together.  In fact I wouldn't
attempt to run SLES without ldap because there are too many
things that are tied into ldap.

Hmm, I didn't notice that up to now.

I have several SLES running, without LDAP, and without problems. What do I miss here? Where do you use LDAP?

I should say that I'm not a YAST user; I'm an old Unix guy who does lots of things on Linux like I learned it 25 years ago. I only use YAST for setup of stand-alone systems. Software installation/updates is done with apt or smart, and configuration is done with Emacs, vi, or CLI commands in /etc. :-)

And, if you don't mind that I come back to my original topic: If you use LDAP for user authentication -- did you encounter performance problems that are related to passwd or group lookups? If no, do you run nscd?
