Problem with ldap auth


Hi...

I installed the fedora directory server. I add a root user and on normal user.

In a workstation machine I can login as root with the password I put in the directory server root account, but when I try to log in as the other user I created, it says that the user account or the password are incorrect.

I think of I can log in as root because I log before with the local account, and the root folder is created.

Is that correct?? If is, how con I condifure pam to create the directory when I log in with the directory server account?/

thx..

well the ideal way to tell would be to add a local user to the machine, the same as the fedora directory server user and then login, if you can, then you have set your pam module to need both local and LDAP accounts

I found the problem, the user isn't in the passwd file in the local machine.

I configured the pam_mkhomedir.so, so the only thing that is missing is a way to pam look the user in the ldap directory...

Any ideas?? my nsswith file already containd the ldap option...

thx..

how about you post your pam module here so i can see what you've done?

Have you configured your /etc/ldap.conf file yet? if no look at the link below to my website

although this is writtern for a openLDAP server, i think it'll work for fedora directory server
