[K12OSN] Re: K12OSN LTSP and LDAP auth probs



Dan:
Thanks for the input. My LTSP box has several /var/log/secure(.1 .2 etc) but not on the ldap server. :( Any other thoughts on where to look?

Thanks again,

The TC gets to a login screen and then will not let me authenticate
(Authentication Failed). Is there anyplace on the LDAP server that I can
monitor authentication requests to see where its failing? I tried
tailing /var/log/messages with no luck. Any help would be greatly
appreciated!!

/var/log/secure?

Brian:
Thanks for your input: I tried getent passwd and got a long list of users - so its probably *not* a binding problem. Any other thoughts and/or could you direct me to which wiki you referred to (below).

Thanks again,

Hello all:

Ok, now that I've got my TC booting (thanks again to Barry and
Almquist), I've gotten /home dirs nfs mounted from a remote server and I
used authconfig to setup LDAP authentication from our LDAP server using
the following command:

authconfig --enableldap --enablemd5 --update

I have edited /etc/ldap.conf to enter the distinguished name of the
search base as follows:
base dc=slane,dc=k12,dc=or,dc=us

And the 'Your LDAP server' section has this entry:
host ldap.slane.k12.or.us

I also added the following lines copied from our current ltsp server's
/etc/ldap.conf file:
ssl no
tls_cacertdir /etc/openldap/cacerts
pam_password md5
uri ldap://oak/ (this line was generated by authconfig using the
'--ldapserver=oak' option on a previous run through)

These are the only uncommented lines in ldap.conf.

The TC gets to a login screen and then will not let me authenticate
(Authentication Failed). Is there anyplace on the LDAP server that I can

I find it useful to try getent passwd to list all the users and then see how you get on. If you only get a few users it's a binding problem. I can give you more info tomorrow when I'm back in work & have acess to my wiki notes.
