Configuration

We need to get user information from the LDAP server and authenticate against it. The following set up the basic configuration:

ldapclient manual -a authenticationMethod=none \
-a defaultSearchBase=dc=tardis,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk \
-a defaultServerList=193.62.81.2 \
-a serviceAuthenticationMethod=pam_ldap:simple

It appears that specifying the server as a host name isn't good enough; not sure why...

You then need to edit /etc/pam.conf to use the pam_ldap module. Entries such as

other   auth required            pam_unix_auth.so.1

to

other   auth binding            pam_unix_auth.so.1 server_policy
other   auth required           pam_ldap.so.1

More information on the Sun directory guide and the ldapclient and pam_ldap manual pages.

Issues

  • Not mounting homedirs off NFS yet.
