Description

/etc/openldap/ldap.conf should contain on both sides (client/server) at least:

BASE            dc=calculate
URI             ldap://192.168.0.1:389/
                       ^^^^^|^^^^^
                            +------- FQDN or IP of LDAP server

It gives us working ldap* utilities and let some programmes do LDAP lookups properly (i.e. sshd, su, mountd and such (through nss_ldap))

Guys, can we deal with it? Looking not very hard to fix it. Please take a look to the fresh snippet from logs:
