check the entry for "group" in /etc/nsswitch.conf

should be

group: files ldap

as well as passwd and shadow

seems there is no connection between your user and groups

getent group

should not show user ids, it should show the names of the user

please post a group on your ldap-server, or check if it contains

memberuid username


memberuid userid

should be username

> should be username
