Authentication to OpenLDAP

Posted 07-13-2012 at 12:44 PM by kbscores

We finally got authentication on Solaris 10 client to work with Linux OpenLDAP Client. It is a little strange because for authentication to work the Solaris machine requires a user account to exist on that box. I believe the reason it is required is because we remove the native ldap, which in turn removes cache manager. The service nscd utilizes cache manager when ldap is in place. Since we no longer have cache manager nscd becomes worthless to authentication process. As one guide so eloquently...

There are moments where I genuinely believed that it was not possible, but alas we have made it. Let me first mention that depending on the state of your Solaris server these instructions might change dramatically. Note this process was completed successfully on a fresh install of Solaris 10.

Odds and ends.

Looking at my old web server hardware docs to see what upgrades it might take. Lo and behold, a slot 1 pIII cpu could be a replacement for the old slot 1 pII cpu. Grabbed the parts bin and whoopie there was not only a pIII, but faster than what I already had. Did the swap and now the web server is so much peppier.
