Re: [K12OSN] ltsp ldap client setup



Hey David, thank you and Matt for the script!

Question #1....did you run authconfig?

Yes.

Question #2....are you running the Samba/LDAP server on the same machine
as the LTSP server?

No.

Question #3....Did you use smbldap-installer to set up the ldap server?

Hell yes.  Although I did run a couple of times with slightly
different settings.  I ended up nuking /var/lib/ldap and re-running
and I  *think* all the other settings went through.  Is there anything
in particular that might not have been updated with a re-run of the
script?  I did move the k12 users to the ldap server because I was
thinking of using the padl.com migrate_passwd.pl because I thought it
actually uses the current passwords (now I don't think it does).  But
I think this might be causing me some problems because
/etc/sysconfig/system-auth checks the login against /etc/passwd first.
Right now my client setup definetely checks the local /etc/passwd
first.  If It doesn't find an entry and does find a ldap user I get
asked for Login, Password, Ldap Password but I still can't get in. Can
you shed any light on this?

Thanks again,
Peter

Question #1....did you run authconfig?  There's nothing special to do to a
K12LTSP server to make it an LDAP client.  Just run authconfig and be done
with it.

Question #2....are you running the Samba/LDAP server on the same machine
as the LTSP server?  If so...again....use authconfig.

Question #3....Did you use smbldap-installer to set up the ldap server?
If not....you did it the hard way.  http://www.majen.net/smbldap  Works
fantastic on Ubuntu....even Dapper....works fine in FC4 and K12LTSP
4.1.....the version for FC5 and K12LTSP 5 is still in beta, but almost
ready.....still one nagging nsswitch issue.  Just the other day I set up
an Ubuntu Samba/LDAP server and authenticated a K12LTSP 5 server to it
along with a Windows machine with roaming profiles....worked fantastic.
