I am trying to configure Active Directory authentication to SUSE 11.2 sever, but somehow we are not able to succeed. in warn file logs are showing error message “nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable”… and I am able to do the ldapsearch from SUSE server with same user.
I used yast to configure LDAP client… does anyone has any idea why we getting this?
below lines are from messages file…

When you mean with “SUSE 11.2 sever” that you use openSUSE 11.2, then you have a very old version which is out of support for a long time and I assume almost nobody here has running it anymore. Thus no first hand answers available.
When you with “SUSE 11.2 sever” mean SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 with service pack 2, then you are at the wrong forums. These are the openSUSE forums. The SLES/SLED forums are at https://forums.suse.com/forum.php. Same username and password as here.

If by SUSE 11.2 you mean SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP2 you
should probably post on https://forums.suse.com/ instead in order to get
the best response. openSUSE 11.2 is old and has been EoL for years.

Welcome to the forums. Just assuming you are using openSUSE 11.2, the first thing you need to do is upgrade. Just over a year ago Samba 4 came out with full Active Directory support. So you would be better off upgrading to 13.1 where you will probably find some well commented files explaining how to do everything.
Now does this ,ean that this is about openSUSE 11.2? When people c;early ask for more precise information, can you then give it. Just telling that the hardware box is old, does not provide much information. And when you do not know what you have, can you then please post the output of
