Server :: LDAP - User Has No Rights To Change Password
Aug 12, 2010
I have configured Ldap Server in CentOS 5.4 & it's working fine, the problem is when I create a ldapuser from server the user can login in client machine but the user has no rights to change the password. How to rectify this by using commands.
I have a problem with my fedora workstation.I am trying to change my ldap user password through passwd command.When I first create the user on ldap server, I use md5 and create the user password.This is the entry:
I setup openldap and samba on 9.10. The ubuntu desktop client gets authenticated successfully with the server. But when I do a passwd on the client, only the ldap passwd is getting changed but not in the samba and the unix user account.
passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://192.168.3.100 ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=local ldap user suffix = ou=People ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
But only the ldap password is getting changed and not in the samba and unix user account.
I want to set samba to act as domain controller PDC.Is it possible to create user profil in samba with rights to change network settings but not install software, create users.Something like network admin that is like normal user but he is able change network settings.
I've installed Directory Server (LDAP). The setup has been done according to the tutorials online. Able to access the interface as well. So far so good. The issue I have is with permissions. I can assign file permissions to a user created in the Directory Server ( user not created on the local server). But the same can't be done for a group - alteast the way I currently see it. How could i assign file system rights to a group created in the directory server.
I am using RackMonkey to map out my lab. Unfortunately, due to RM limitations, every user who accesses the site has write access UNLESS they are logged in as a user named "guest". I currently have Apache allowing only the users (sysadmins) in an LDAP group access to RM, but I would like to allow read-only access for other users as well.I found mod_authn_anon, but I am having trouble combining the two authentication methods. I am using Apache 2.2.18 (compiled myself) on SLES 11.1.
This is the common part:
AuthType Basic AuthBasicProvider ldap anon Order allow,deny Allow from all
This part by itself works for the LDAP authentication:
Anonymous guest Anonymous_VerifyEmail Off Anonymous_MustGiveEmail Off Anonymous_LogEmail on Require valid-user
But if I have both of the previous blocks enabled at once, then guest access does not work. If I throw in a "Satisfy any", then I am not prompted for a username at all. How can I allow access to this LDAP group and to a user named "guest", but not allow all valid LDAP users to log in?
I have installed servers(10.04 LTS Server) with Kerberos + LDAP, now I can ssh to all those servers and login with kerberos principle. But when I want to change password, I got such error:
Code: Current Kerberos password: Enter new Kerberos password: Retype new Kerberos password: Password change rejected: Password not changed. Kerberos database constraints violated while trying to change password.
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error passwd: password unchanged I have search this issue but cannot any useful information. Would someone give me a direction?
I am using CentOS 5.6 and recently, well since I updated to 5.6 when I login through ssh/telnet I am prompted to change the password of any account which is my LDAP directory. Local accounts are unaffected. I haven't tried the console as this server is tucked away in a tiny room. This is really annoying because I don't want to run password expiry on that server and I'm sure that there's nothing in LDAP to indicate password expiry is on. My shadowmax is 9999 by default for every account..which is over 27 years I think. It's only started recently. I'd like to know how I can turn the expiry message off. I'd like to get rid of cracklib as well.
my etc/pam.d/sshd is #%PAM-1.0 auth include system-auth account required pam_nologin.so account include system-auth password include system-auth session optional pam_keyinit.so force revoke session include system-auth session required pam_loginuid.so
I am trying to set up a simple home file-server for media and backups, using an old Atom board I had lying around and 1GB memory, so I don't want a full desktop. All goes well with installing server 10.10, using LVM for my data disk. However, I wanted some GUI tools since I am not familiar with the CLI, so I installed gdm, xorg, and gnome-core as suggested in some threads and forums.So far so good, it boots into the Gnome desktop, but I can't get sudo access with anything (synaptic, gkedit, etc.) - always "incorrect password". I am fine from the console; I reset my user password, no luck; I set up another admin user, and that also works in console but not the desktop.I have no idea where to go next and can't find anything that works in the forum
I'm having a bit of a problem after joining Ubuntu 9.04 to my company's Windows Domain. I can log in and use sudo just fine but I don't have access to certain things in my menu (i.e. "Add/Remove Software") and I can't open the User Manager. I manually edited the /etc/group file as root and added my username (username@domain) to the appropriate groups but still no luck.
I want to add 50 new users, not on the server yet I want to add them all to group Accounting - with 1 option, not user by user I want to setup a default password for them all, and have it say something like 'You must now change password or no access will be permitted' Any other options I also want to do once, not for each user?
At the RHEL prompt, I entered the standard user's username/password combo. Linux displays a message box stating:"Your account has expired; please contact your system administrator."Next, I entered "root" in the username field and entered the root password (which expired also--keep in mind that passwords are set to expire after x days). Linux displays a message box stating:"You are required to change your password immediately (password aged)."When prompted to "Enter current UNIX password", I entered the new password (was that the right thing to do?); Linux displays a message box stating:"The change of the authentication token failed. Please try again later or contact the system administrator."I rebooted the system and got into command line mode; somehow I logged in as "root" (don't know exactly how, but needed to change the password there). At the "#" prompt, I type "passwd root"; Linux displays the message "Changing password for user root", followed by the message "passwd: Authentication information cannot be recovered.
I started a new job and they use LDAP here. I built a new RHEL 5.5 server and configured LDAP. Usernames are recognized but the password is not. I can chown a file to a user name but when I try to login as the user it won't accept the password.I know the password is correct because I can login to any of the old boxes and it accepts the password. I ran authconfig-tui to tell my RHEL box to authenticate to ldap.
I want to Configure Linux LDAP Server for user authentication when my users want to connect to the internet.Also i don't want the user to get the home directory on server. i configured ldap server and ldap client without PAM & SASL.and now with perl i can search in ldap for my client's username & password in ldap.
I have a user account which is required to run as part of the operating system and as a service. I am currently attempting to install my companies software on an Ubuntu desktop via wine just for the purpose of finding out if it's do-able.
Is there a way, in Ubuntu, for a user account to be given the local rights assignment to act as part of the operating system and to function as a service in the background?
I am facing problem in adding new users in ldap server and client for a long time. I configure ldap server and client successfully and I can login the client machine by a user. User is created on server during configuring the server but after same time when I create a new user on server and create a home dir for the same user on client machine and assign 700 permission on home dir of same user and copy the /etc/skel/.* /home/user-dir and when run the command "#chown -R user:users /home/user" it shows invalid user error.
I installed CentOS 5.2 and then run yum update. I configured this server as LDAP/Samba primary domain controller. LDAP seems to be OK and for testing I am able to create users with:smbldap-tools useradd -am usernameI can ssh into the server as root and also as a Linux user which was locally created in the server. But ssh into the server as LDAP user fails (from a Fedora 11 machine) with "Permission denied, please try again", prompting again for password.Some data:
