I just got a user account on a server with its nsswitch pointing at ldap.
Something is wrong with my home folder (I don't have one).
Generally the home folders are mounted by automount/autofs and the automount maps are in ldap.
In the bad old days of NIS it would have been as easy as
ypcat auto.home | grep myusername to verify if the automount map had sane data.
In Solaris they seem to have similar features built into
How can I query the automount maps in CentOS 6 type Linux?
I do not have ldapsearch available, nor do I know what ldap server I'm using or how the catalog is structured. So I don't think manual ldap queries is much of an option.
