[CentOS] Fedora Directory Authentication on CentOS 5

I am trying to set up a Fedora Directory server for centralised

I configure the directory server, add a user called (via the Java GUI)
test and then, using system-config-authentication, enable LDAP on both
tabs. I then try to log-in using the test account I set up on the
directory, but I get an error message in /var/log/messages:

May 30 16:28:27 ds1 sshd(pam_unix)[4445]: check pass; user unknown
May 30 16:28:27 ds1 sshd(pam_unix)[4445]: authentication failure;
logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=localhost.localdomain

which seems to indicate that it cannot find the user in the directory.
The server is accepting connections on the standard LDAP port.

Am I missing anything?
