LDAP passwd Authentication token manipulation error


Hi,

Wondering if people can help here:

I have a Redhat 4.7 client using LDAP for passwd, shadow and group control. The LDAP server is Sun's running on a Solaris 8 server soon to be moving to RH 5.4 and openldap!

My users can login without issue, you can see proper fileownership etc, when a user tries to change there passwd they get this:

(stuart@msrvadm01 in ~): passwd
Changing password for user stuart.
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error

I can see the user using getent

(stuart@msrvadm01 in ~): getent passwd | grep -w stuart
stuart:x:30155:2014:Stuart Cherrington:/export/home/stuart:/bin/bash

and they are NOT in the passwd file.

I've tried a few changes to the ldap.conf to allow tls certificate looksups etc but still no joy.

There's a lot of these problems on the web but none specifically deal with this issue.

Anyone got any offers?

Thanks,

Stuart.

Scrap all that - I fixed it! Yay me.

ran the autoconfig-tui to configure usage of ldap in authentication, this worked fine.
