authenticating domain users
How to get KDM or GDM to authenticate users against a linux domain controller. We are using a ClarkConnect PDC.I got windows users to authenticate and got linux users to join the domain. But I need to have the users to logon to the workstations using their user IDs and passwors kept in the PDC.
I don't know about ClarkConnect...
... but, in general...
Linux supports "PAM's" - "pluggable Authentication Modules" so you can substitue LDAP for /etc/passwd (for example). I believe whatever you need to do for ClarkConnect is similar to what you'd need to do for OpenLDAP or AciveDirectory.
Here are a few links that might help:
Thanks for the quick help and great links. I used the configuration explained in the first link:
and I was able to get a linux PC to authenticate using GDM. I will try KDM later.
I had some little problems as follows:
1- I have to put dhcdbd and nm-applet off and use normal dhcp setup instead.
2- When I disconnect the lan connection,the system takes long time to show GDM logon screen, around 10-15 minutes. This does not happen with XP.
3- The sound is deactivated for the remote users.
