Server :: OpenLDAP SHA Hashed Passwords Won't Work

Jan 24, 2011

I have recently installed openldap on a server to use for authentication but I'm unable to get SHA/SSHA password hashes to work. I'm able to authenticate against it when the user have a CRYPT password. We had an old badly maintained openldap server that SHA worked on so I ran slapcat on that one and built that database on the new openldap server and was able to authenticate with SHA hashed passwords. So I'm quite confident that my slapd.conf works.

I suppose it's something in the ldif file I use to setup the database that is missing but I can't figure out what. It's quite large and I don't really know what parts of it would be relevant.

Debian Configuration :: Migrate The Users Without Resetting Their Passwords?

Aug 13, 2010

I have an old server running CentOS 5. The encription method used was the default MD5 for the shadow file. I would like to migrate the server to Debian Squeeze which uses SHA512. I have already copied the passwd, group and shadow file with the user accounts information but the Debian machine doesn't let the users login. I have already looked in the pam files to make it accept the MD5 encryption without any luck. how can i migrate the users without resetting their passwords?

Software :: Import Windows Users / Passwords Into Openldap Server - Ldap Migrate Migration?

Nov 18, 2009

I am looking for ideas for getting windows users into an ldap server. I am currently running a Linux server for my department and need to create an LDAP server which mirrors the username/password information for all of us as they are stored in the windows server here. I have the openldap server up and running on Ubuntu 8.04 and it works great; I now need to find some way to import user info into this from windows. I've seen discussions of using ldifde.exe to export the AD users into an ldif file. Is this the simplest way to go about it?

Our Linux server is currently providing us with much needed services using apache, and apache is authenticating using LDAP to our windows server (Using our windows username / password is required functionality). This windows server has some problem which causes it to delay for inordinate amounts of time between authentication requests and responses. The situation is such that this problem will not be addressed by IT staff. However, I have control over the Linux server so I am looking to just mirror the windows server on an LDAP server of my own. I could get away with updating the passwords in the Linux server.

Fedora Servers :: Migrate System To New Hardware?

Jul 11, 2009

I have a working system running some older fedora, and new hardware running a fresh, new fedora install. I want to basically transfer my computer's "soul" into the new system ( user's stuff, firewall configuration, the various server & security configurations, etc.) and basically any customizations and non-hardware related packages installed that weren't part of the standard fedora install process. I'm looking for a magical easy button I can push to do all this (pause for laughter). Essentially, I want to "upgrade", but starting with a clean install on a different computer with different hardware. I have a vague idea of what needs to happen, like copying the /etc/*.conf files, /home directory, etc. but this seems very tedious, and the likelihood of me forgetting or overlooking something is 100%, and copying over entire disks or partitions wholesale is not necessary, and does not work for this scenario. I need to place/merge just the right files/directories in just the right places with surgical precision. Is there a utility for this? Maybe a way to diff the packages of the 2 computers and install the difference? Or at the very least some sort of checklist that could be scripted for my system? I'm desperately trying to avoid the pain, human misery & suffering encountered getting everything in the 1st system going.

Fedora Servers :: Migrate Local Users And Sendmail Mailboxes?

Apr 21, 2010

I found 2 previous posts, one from 2005 and one from 2006. The 2005 post was not very helpful and the 2006 threads are not exactly what I was expecting. So I wanted to ask the question to be sure. I have already stood up the new fedora 12 server. The old server is also fedora 12. I need to migrate local users and sendmail mailboxes. In the past couple of years the environment was small enough to create a copy of the users and then have the users mail themselves, but I want to start migrating users/mailboxes properly.

On a unix level I am a jr admin, but I have extensive senior level experience as a windows engineer and network engineer. I do feel comfortable with using the unix command line, but usually operate the unix systems thru webmin because I am not familular with more complex commands. Ideally a software solution to migrate users and/or mailboxes from one server to another is what I am looking for, but in leiu of a software solution I still need to migrate user accounts and their mailboxes. LDAP is not in place, but if the process becomes easier with LDAP I am willing to do what is needed to set up LDAP. (I have no previous experience setting up LDAP)

I do not want to change my mail server from sendmail to different software. At least right now. Both systems are up and running. They can connect to each other via public ipv4 address' only. The new server has already been installed and configured with all the software to match the old server. How do I migrate users and sendmail mailboxes from one fedora 12 server to another fedora 12 server?

Fedora Servers :: Samba Not Saving Passwords?

Feb 9, 2010

So I've set up a Samba server through the gui. When I've labeled my shares as accessible to everyone, I can get to it no problem. However, when I tie it down to a specific samba user, I can't.

By all indications, it appears that it isn't saving the password because every time I go to edit users, it has the exact same string in the password field.

Fedora Servers :: Passwords Aren't Consistent With Root

Aug 2, 2010

We use a Linux server with AFS on it. I changed the linux root password using passwd. The new password will let me log in as root but when I try to change the AFS admin password it asks for the root password. When I put in the password that it let me log in as root. It tells me authentication failed. And when I run the password command with -admin admin, it asks for the admin password. I put in the admin password that worked before I changed the root and it says authorization failed.

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate Users To New Installation?

Jun 23, 2011

How do I migrate my user list to a new server installation? I thought that just copying /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow would be enough. I recently tried upgrading a lightweight bazaar server to 11.04, and the upgrade crashed. I had to perform a new installation of Ubuntu to recover operation of the system. I installed on a different hard drive. I had a dozen other people with user logins, so that they can get or modify bazaar repositories.

The new installation is running, and I can read all of the files on my old system's / drive. I tried copying the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files onto my new /etc -- but that did not seem to work. (When I looked using the System->Administration->Users-and-Groups GUI tool, there were no users visible, so I restored the old files.) What I intended to do was to clone the /etc and /home trees over to the new system. What am I missing?

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate SVN Repository From Dapper To Lucid?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a (very old) svn repositoy on an ubunta dapper machine. I want to switch to another machine with lucid running. I simply want to "copy" the whole repository to the new machine. I've tried several ways, but the most succesful one was to do a dump on the old machine, copy the file to the new machine and do a load there. The repository has about 28.000 revisions. At revision 3130 it stopped with an error saying some path was not in UTF-8. I tried running a UTF-8 migrationtool on the dapper machine but this told me all files were UTF-8 compatible already. I am really stuck, even a two and a half hour google session didn't provide any answer.

edit: more specific, the error I get is:


svnadmin: Path 'beginofpath?218tabase' is not in UTF-8

The end should have been /database instead of ?218tabase. When I look in the revision on the dapper machine this path shows a square at that location, so this is wrong also. When I try to open the dumpdile in gedit I get an errormessage saying:


Could not open the file /home/usrname/repo.svndump using the Unicode (UTF-8 ) character encoding

When I change the encoding I get the same error for that encoding.

Ubuntu Servers :: Where Are Samba Passwords Located In 10.10?

Apr 10, 2011

Although my smb.conf file cites /etc/samba/smbpasswd as the password file, I see that it is not in some database file. Since smb.conf doesn't seem to look anywhere else but /etc/samba/smbpasswd, how can I direct it to the new password scheme. At least this is what I find when using SWAT to display the smb.conf file contents.This seems to be preventing my windows client having access to shared printers, but yet, not shared files.

Software :: Mount Read An 88 Plaintext Partition?

I've one big partition that fdisk reports to be this type 88 Linux Plaintext partition here you a full list of partitions type from fdisk help. I need to mount it and read it, but mount command seems to doesn't recognize 88 type. Maybe something could be done with LVM? But I had never play with LVM. To be true I suspect that originally this was handled by some virtual partition or LVM.

Fedora :: Migrate On A Bigger HDD?

Jul 24, 2010

I have Fedora on SATA HDD 80Gb.Now I want to move all partitions to the 500Gb one.Some of partitions will remain the same size, some will increase. I tried that with Paragon Hard Disk Manager,but after it was done I found a problem, that they can't pass fsck checkup.It says something about cross linked files and on the root partition it failed at all with warning something about bad superblock.what is the easiest way to move to the big HDD? What soft should I use? Maybe it's sufficient to boot from CD, create new partitions and copy all files from source partitions to destination ones?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Migrate Script From HP-UX?

Mar 1, 2011

I have created some new weblogic domains in linux machines and I migrated the related scripts. All works ok but the following.

In stop script it seems that after the execution reaches the following command (which performs the actual shutdown of the server) the script lets say that it pauses(?) its execution. The server is actually stopped, but I found that to continue to execution of the script I need to hit Ctrl+C or Enter. I seems that some sort of user interaction is required.

The command is the following:
Code: ${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java -cp ${CLASSPATH} weblogic.Admin FORCESHUTDOWN -url ${URL} ${UIDPWD} ${SERVER_NAME} 2>&1 I am positive that all parameters are defined correctly. After all the script works. The only thing that comes to mind is the 2>&1 for redirection of the output. Could this need different syntax?

General :: Unable To Migrate Fedora 10 To Another Computer?

Feb 4, 2010

I've been running Fedora 10 in a computer with Asus motherboard,M2V, but I want to move the hard drive with Fedora 10 installed on to another computer with Asus motherboard,M2NPV. The reason I mention both motherboards by their name is because both of them are almost identical except for the boards.

When I try to boot Fedora 10 in the one with M2NPV, the boot process complains that it can't find the root file system.

The Fedora OS was installed on one hard drive with the following partitions:/boot partition LVM Volgroup partition swap partition.

It appears to me that the boot loader can't find /boot partition and thereby the initrd.img.

I tried to rebuild initrd.img, but the rescue disk could not find the installed OS.

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate WebDAV To New WebDAV?

Feb 2, 2011

I have a WebDAV folder (complete folder hierarchy in fact) currently managed by SAP's KM module. Long story short: it's in Windows, it's slow, I hate it.

I want to migrate the hole tree to my brand new Ubuntu Server 10.04 with a functional WebDAV server I just finished configuring. It connects to LDAP for user authentication, it's fast, it works like a charm.

Do you guys know any way I can transfer/migrate files from the Windows WebDAV to to Ubuntu WebDAV? The only thing that is important to keep is file security properties. Both WebDAVs have the same user database: our corporate Active Directory.
