can anyone tell me what is the difference between these two files of LDAP client /etc/ldap.conf and /etc/ldap/ldap.conf and for what purposes these two files gives services. Is it necessary to have these two files at a time ?
I want to configure LDAP auth in DB2. From IBM docs I learned that first I need to configure LDAP authentication in operating system. But in documentation described old way of configuring LDAP for Operating system. RedHat recommends to use only new SSSD tool.
So, I configured it using SSSD (but without SSL, setting FORCELEGACY parameter in authconfig file to YES).
I am building LTSP environment with LDAP authentication. I have configured the LTSP,LDAP server and client perfectly. I checked with getent passwd command in LTSP/LDAP client. It is giving my LDAP users details.
When I booted my LTSP thin client, I am able to login with LDAP user credentials in Alt+Ctrl+F1 mode. But, Not able to login through GUI( lightdm ).
I have CentOS6 x86_64. I have installed 389 ldap service in two desktops but all clients point to one ldap only say A. when client computers get restarted it is not able to login using ldap authentication for single user only(who uses that machine). I restart nscd and nslcd service also but of no use.
I am setting an ldap client on a ubuntu 14.04 server and can't seem to logon. I see an error in the auth.log that says unknown user. I have installed ldap-auth-client, ldap-auth-config, libldap-2.4-2, libnss-ldap, and libpam-ldap. I modified /etc/ldap.conf with my uri and base. Also modified /etc/nsswitch.conf to include ldap in passwd, group, and shadow. I can ping to uri.
I am trying to set up an OpenBSD box to use a LDAP server for authentication. I am following the directions at http://www.obfuscurity.com/2009/08/OpenBSD-as-an-LDAP-Client and for the most part they seem to be working.
