hi there,I’m getting such a headache today, I’ve added myself to three mailing lists trying to figure this out, okay here it goes.
I’ve got a Fedora Core 4 box running dovecot imap, squirrel mail, postfix,samba/winbind.I’m running winbind to authenticate against Active Directory, I’ve edited my ‘/etc/pam.d/dovecot’ pam module so to let my users login with there Active directory password, but squirrel mail wont let them … I think, let me stress the term, ‘think’ is has something to do with there home directories, because I have some local users as well, they can login no issues & my users
with the same usernames on unix and ADS can login with there ADS passwords … (because they have a local account home directory)
Now I’m looking at the dovecot webmin module and I see that ‘Data source for users, homes and Ids’ is set to use ‘Standard unix username database’. There is now option of PAM like in ‘Password authentication source’. Although I do see LDAP, using config file. Can I set that to query Active directory ldap database and go there Data source for users, homes and Ids’? If I can can someone tell me how to, if not can someone tell me what I need to do?
As time goes on I'm convinced more and more the problem is that I can't make the home directory when I login into squirrel mail ... Has anyone ever incounted this before?
Q1. Can dovecot use it's LDAP configuration to get information from Active Directory? if so can someone show me and example dovecot-ldap.conf file?
Q2. To this me seams like just virtual user scenario, in virtual users how do you get a home directory for mail to be stored in automatically?
Q3. In my /etc/pam.d/dovecot pam module (shown below) it requests that you make a home directory, when i use this in my sshd pam module and login i make a home directory, when i do it via squirrel mail it dosn't make a home directory, why?
