Default Troubles: OpenLDAP SambaDomain Controller Ubuntu 7.10

Hi, I have just installed Ubuntu 7.10 server (64 bit version) and I have installed OpenLDAP and Samba in order to make a good PDC server by LDAP authentication.
I have installed all the software and libraries needed according to the http://www.howtoforge.com/openldap-s...-ubuntu7.10-p2 howto and this is the problem that I have: all seems to go right but, when I reboot the system after the procedure to tell the server to use LDAP as one of the options to authenticate users, I am unable to login and the system don't accept any command.

The only way to restore the system is to boot from a live cd and restore the pam.d directory and the nsswitch.conf file as the original.

When I try to check if the server is alive (ping IP address) and login using a pc client I have this situation:

- ping OK
- ssh (doesn't answer)
- webmin (doesn't answer)

I make the entire installation procedure two times but I have the same result
I suspect that some library is corrupted (I am sure that the howto works fine)

I hope someone can help me !!!

No, any message in my logs ....
I tried many changes in pam.d files and in nsswitch.conf according to various treads read around the web about ubuntu-ldap authentications but the only way to login is the original with username and password of the local user and not for the ldap user.

How do you enable the function without restarting the server?
