getent still fails, now I'm getting can't connect messages again.

Dec 16 12:59:58 ldap nscd: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server
is unavailable

Also, the People container was removed and not re-added when I re-created
the tree with webmin,
hence, I modified the lines in /etc/ldap.conf to reflect:

nss_base_passwd         dc=tncionline,dc=net
nss_base_shadow         dc=tncionline,dc=net
nss_base_group          dc=tncionline,dc=net
