Re: [K12OSN] Linux Auth'ing to Novell Edirectory--Question



Hi Caleb,

Guy's directions are great! Check the user creation section of 8.3 in the wiki. The important part that you need is a line that looks like this in your pam.d files:

auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_ncp_auth.so nullok use_first_pass ndsserver=Server_Name:ou=Your_OU -d -L -mMount_Point -u2000,4000,pn,gcds -g2000,4000,pn
(Notes: (1) that is all on one line, (2) the -m flag is the name of the mount point in the user's home directory, and there is no space between '-m' and the name.)


This allows authentication to eDirectory and automatically creates the authenticated user/group on the Linux box. The only downside (in my environment) is that the Netware home directory is a subdirectory of the Linux home directory. If I could get Linux to use the Netware home directory as its home directory, I would be an extremely happy camper!

Someone told me he was going to update this info for 2.6 kernel.

So I think I've figured out how to get Linux boxes auth'ing to
edirectory...the holdup now is I have to manually create the home directories
for new users. Has anyone done this?
