Post RHEL TDS LDAP Connection?


Hi All,

Using RHEL or Centos am I able to connect to an IBM Tivoli Directory Server 6.3 (LDAP V3 Compliant), using authconfig-tui?
with a Base DN such as : o=fun,c=au

Or is authconfig mainly used for Open LDAP Connections only?

Main reason I asked is that I tried to conenct using LDAP from a RHEL server to the TDS Server, and it just exited out, with no details of how the conenction will take place?

Thanks

that gui config tool is a toy, just don't use it. edit the config files directly and you'll be able to hook up to just about any legitimate LDAP server.

What's probably best is to put in the details you have in the tool, that'll update pam etc, then you'd customize /etc/pam_ldap.conf and /etc/nslcd.conf (I think.... or was it /etc/nss_ldap.conf?)

You have to create a proxy user and put userid / passwd into nslcd.conf

binddn cn=proxyuser,ou=example,ou=ibm.com
bindpw password_in_clear_text
