I do not know if this will work in your situation, but I'm wondering if
using the recommended configuration, which seems to do the reverse --
authenticate via pam_ldap first and then if that fails use pam_unix --
will work for you.
Entries like this in your PAM configuration should accomplish this:
auth sufficient pam_ldap.so
auth required pam_unix.so use_first_pass
account sufficient pam_ldap.so
account required pam_unix.so use_first_pass
session required pam_unix.so
password sufficient pam_ldap.so
password required pam_unix.so use_first_pass nullok md5
If you've already tried this before and it doesn't work, my apologies.
