Re: [Fedora-directory-users] FDS / PAM Integration Questions

Hi Richard,
I found the root cause of my problems, and they are as follows (in case anyone else happens to be searching these archives).  I was using a keytab file that was readable only by root, while I was running the server as the default install user of nobody.  As soon as I opened read access to that user, all kerberos / gssapi / sasl mechanisms worked.  Also, the confusion I had earlier of if I should enter in the detail via the console was due to the fact I hadn't refreshed all after making the addition to the config - sasl -mapping - mymap entry with the nssaslmapping.  After I refreshed, this mapping appeared under the SASL Mapping in the configuration tab.  I realize this probably isn't the most secure way of doing this, so I'll probably change the default user that the server runs as.

I have a few more questions regarding GSSAPI with FDS.

1) Because I have GSSAPI / SASL enabled, does this automatically enable encryption via GSSAPI?  It mentioned that it will do this in the documentation, but I was unable to find the details of this.

2) I've setup a second FDS to be act as a consumer (single master replication).  I've followed the administator's documentation and set a simple cn=replication manager, cn=config on both servers to act as the bind for replication (via replication agreement).  I've tested this and everything is working great (directory entries, GSSAPI, etc).  I would imagine that when the replication binds, the password is sent in clear text.  Is this true?  If I create a new user in the cn=config and create a new sasl mapping (uid=\1,cn=config) can I simply create a kerberos principal with the same name and use GSSAPI for the bind?  The same question as #1 above is will this session be encrypted via GSSAPI as well?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
