i have configured ldapserver on rhel4 for creating address book
following are configuration files on ldap server /etc/openldap/slapd.conf include /etc/openldap/schema/core.schema include /etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema include /etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema include /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema
i am able to import this ldif file into database.also when i perform the ldapsearch on this server with command"ldapsearch �x �W �D �cn=manager, dc=example, dc =com� �b �dc=example, dc=com�" i get correct output.
but when i am trying to search from another client machine, i am getting "error ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)"
also when i configured address book on mozilla on server., it is working fine.but not working on another machine.is any configuration is missing on client machine.both ldap server and client are configured on rhel4es without any firewall or selinux.
Here are the specs of my machine: Linux matrix 2.6.18-92.el5 #1 SMP Tue Apr 29 13:16:12 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga)
When I run an ldapsearch in root, it works fine. tcpdump filtered by dest IP shows packets captured.
When I run an ldapsearch in a perl script as root, it works fine. tcpdump filtered by dest IP shows packets captured.
However, when I run it via a perl script in my cgi-bin directory it fails. tcpdump shows no packets captured. When I added a "2>&1" to my ldap search in my cgi script, I got "ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)".
I ran a "whoami" in my cgi script and it showed up as apache.
Another twist to all this is that I ran the same test on my slackware box, and everything works (esp the cgi script). Here's what the specs are on that machine:
Linux slackvm 126.96.36.199-smp #2 SMP Mon Aug 17 00:52:54 CDT 2009 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
I checked the permissions on the ldapsearch file and directory, and they're the same (755).
Could there be something blocking the apache user on my Red Hat box from sending packets out?
I'm checking with a sniffer and there's activity going on between the client and the LDAP server... as a matter of fact, the sniffer shows that the search is producing one ldap item, however, php says it can't contact the ldap server (after it has bound and everything):
The script is working beautifully on another host with debian.
I have installed openldap on debian lenny as said here [URL]clients" for both ldap server and ldap client on 192.168.1.192. Now I can make normal ldap successfully but I would like to do secure ldap and replication ldap too. "ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)" here is the error I got stuck with when I follow this link for replication and ssl/tls part[URL]Then I google to find solution and then try these commands
I'm trying to set up a Linux server and I am new to this. I have gone through most of the configuration using SAMBA 3.0 and when I populate the ldap directory all I get this error before the password request:
Then when I perform an ldapsearch to see if the directory is populated I get this message:
I configured openLdap in RHEL5 on virtual achines,everything is working fine, I created a user called ldapuser,in LDAP server and i created a home directory for ldapuser in my LDAP client, now i can able to login to the both Server and client with ldapuser account....
Now here what am expecting is i want to export my server's home directory to the client, i dont want to create home directories manually in the client machine, i googled about that, and it can be done through autofs.....
what need to be done on the client and server side.
we have a weird problem with our opensuse 11.2 server installation.
We want to set up a LDAP Server using the Yast-LDAP Server configuriation tool.
This indeed already worked weeks ago until....this week. Maybe some updates??!
I do not know what happend exactly. The server just does not want to start again and throws following error:
Starting ldap-serverstartproc: exit status of parent of /usr/lib/openldap/slapd: 1 failed
This happend after a little check of the configuration, but without a change, with Yast. Google delivered only "reinstall your box"-answers.
So.. i did that. And now the "mystical" part: The SAME ERROR occurs with a fresh vanilla system with a brand new and simple configuration (certificats, database, pw...the first Yast config dialog...). I did not change the way i set it up.
I remember, when i did this the first time with 11.2 on that machine, when no problems occured...everything was running out of the box (except the "use commen server certificate" option...).
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.
In the past I found some great help on this forum, so here goes. Bare with me because it's a long story. I'll try to be as complete as possible. I've installed and configured OpenLdap on a virtual machine with ip 192.168.39.134. I've added 2 users via LAM. In the ou WikiUsers and the domain is wiki.local.
I've then created another host with ip 192.168.39.133 with mediawiki installed on it. Then I added the extension LDAPAuthenthication. In the LdapAuthentication file I added this code (only the last paragraph is mine, I added the others to show it's location in the script):
I know I'm close because I can't register any new users or accounts on the mediawiki site. Although I could before I added the LDAP service. This is indeed all just to test and get to know how LDAP works. That's why it's all virtual in VMWare. I did not really configure anything on the LDAP, i just installed it and chose a domain (wiki.local).
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 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 have a server and a few clients set up with LDAP and NFS. All user files and logins are on the server, and I can login as a normal user on any client and get to my files. However, if I log in as root on a client, I can't write in root-owned directories on the NFS. I suppose that client-root and server-root are different.
Question: is there some way to convince the LDAP or that client-root and server-root are the same?
(This was posted at the end of another thread, where it probably didn't belong, so reposting here)I have Active Directory set up on one machine (and I can't really adjust the settings very much) and Ubuntu Server 10.04, which I would like to use as a client.I followed the directions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LD...Authentication, but when I get to
Code: getent passwd I don't see anything from the LDAP, and ssh'ing into the box from an LDAP/AD username certainly doesn't work.
In addition, I've attempted to use Webmin's LDAP Configuration module to configure it. I can connect to the server and can browse it with the LDAP browser with my settings, but the Webmin package doesn't recognize the users (which are organized in one of four Organizational Units (OUs) within the OU that I have as my Search Base) as users,
how to make a new Ubuntu 9.10 box use our LDAP/Samba server for user authentication. Our Red Hat and Windows machines all use it just fine. I've been trying to use the auth-client-config and libnss-ldap packages for this purpose, but I must be missing something. I'm pretty green with LDAP, so this is my first time diving in... Is there a good How-To or step-by-step read on this? All of my searches lead me to setting up Ubuntu as the server, and that isn't what I want. I've also tried the steps listed in [URL] for the LDAP Authentication section.
I had a machine that is using ldap, but need to remove it completely.I edited the /etc/nsswitch.conf and removed all references of ldapand renamed /etc/ldap.conf to /etc/ldap.conf.bakI can log in as root, but cannot log in as any user in /etc/passwdIn the /var/log it shows pam_ldap: missing file "/etc/ldap.conf"I am guessing I am missing something else?I never set this machine up for ldap, was here when i got here, so not sure of steps to even put ldap on.
When ever I have an issue with our LDAP server (which I was able to fix) we see the following errors in /var/log/messages and it causes problems with our services running on that box, e.g. httpd, nrpe, xinetd, etc. Aug 8 17:44:42 hostname httpd: nss_ldap: failed to bind to LDAP server ldap://serveraddress/: Can't contact LDAP server Aug 8 17:44:42 hostname httpd: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 64 seconds)... I am only wanting to authenticate SSH and Sudo and not services like httpd, nrpe, xinetd etc.
can anyone tell me what is the difference between these two files of LDAP client /etc/ldap.conf and /etc/ldap/ldap.conf and for what purposes these two files gives services. Is it necessary to have these two files at a time ?
I use these files to install LDAP client to authenticate with our LDAP server by creating a symbolic link of /etc/ldap.conf to /etc/ldap/ldap.conf.
I`am just trying to connect Samba with ldap to make it simpler for the users to log in. We have already attached squid, so by that we thought it would be easy to do the same with samba. I think we did something wrong with the ldap config for the os with is btw:
Quote: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64) VERSION = 11 PATCHLEVEL = 1 We added Quote: ldap admin dn = cn=xxx,o=xxx
I am using centos 5.5 x85_64 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5 The server is hanging at start up due to the follwoing error
udevd nss_ldap reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 4 seconds) udevd failed to bind to LDAP ser er ldap://192.168.0.100 cant contact ldap
It fails and then tries again, and again, each time increasing the sleep time. This is happening before network sercvices are started so ther is no way it can connect to ldap. anyone know a way to fix this problem?
