Please let us know what OS & OS Version you are using. Also, if it is
original SysV or HP-UX then is there anything in /etc/initgroups?
Sudo does three calls to try to determine your groups. The first is
getgrgid(getgid()) which returns your primary group. The second is that
it calls getgroups(0,NULL) with a to ask how many groups you belong to.
(For memory allocation purposes). Finaly it calls getgroups() with a
structure to receive the array of groups you belong to.
The collection of your username + primary group + all the secondary
groups are used to construct an query to send to LDAP.
Try turning on ldap debugging (add "sudoers_debug 2" to /etc/ldap.conf)
to see that the query is being built correctly.
Hope this all helps, let us know the results of the debugging and the
results of the "groups" and "id" and "id -a" commands. We'll help debug
it and make sudo better.
