CentOS 5 with LDAP to Active Directory Login Question


I am attempting to setup a CentOS 5.2 server that will allow users to login via the terminal or ssh with their active directory login. I do not want them to have to remember to type DOMAIN\ with their username as that also breaks one of the tools we are trying to use.
I can bind to the AD LDAP but no authentication takes place. Using wireshark I can see the bind request and bind successes.

ldap.conf
# @(#)$Id: ldap.conf,v 1.38 2006/05/15 08:13:31 lukeh Exp $
#
# This is the configuration file for the LDAP nameservice
# switch library and the LDAP PAM module.
#
# The man pages for this file are nss_ldap(5) and pam_ldap(5)
#
# PADL Software
# http://www.padl.com
#

# Your LDAP server. Must be resolvable without using LDAP.
# Multiple hosts may be specified, each separated by a
# space. How long nss_ldap takes to failover depends on
# whether your LDAP client library supports configurable
# network or connect timeouts (see bind_timelimit).
#host 127.0.0.1

# The distinguished name of the search base.
base DC=domain,DC=com

# Another way to specify your LDAP server is to provide an
# uri with the server name. This allows to use
# Unix Domain Sockets to connect to a local LDAP Server.
#uri ldap://127.0.0.1/
#uri ldaps://127.0.0.1/
#uri ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fldapi_sock/
# Note: %2f encodes the '/' used as directory separator

# The LDAP version to use (defaults to 3
# if supported by client library)
#ldap_version 3

# The distinguished name to bind to the server with.
# Optional: default is to bind anonymously.
binddn CN=User,OU=OrgU,DC=domain,DC=com

# The credentials to bind with.

# The distinguished name to bind to the server with
# if the effective user ID I have configured is root. Password is
# stored in /etc/ldap.secret (mode 600)
#rootbinddn cn=manager,dc=example,dc=com

# Optional: default is 389.

Use samba to join the machine to the domain. In your /etc/krb5.conf file, under the libdefaults section, add this parameter:

default_realm = DOMAIN.COM

Also, if you're using MsSFU (I think they call it something else now), you'll need to set up your nss mappings

Thanks for the responses! I needed to install Services for Unix in order to get the mapping back from Active Directory. LDAP is completely working now.

Thanks again for the replies.
