Strange Pam-Ldap authentication issue
Hello, I'm sorry I know pam/ldap integration is passe, but I've got a
strange problem. I've setup the padl libnss-ldap and pam-ldap, and
everything seems to be working. I have all my user accounts imported into
Ldap, and I've added one extra user account to LDAP (but not
in /etc/passwd) to test with. Here is what I can and cannot do:
- "finger test-user" works, and I get a listing of the shell, home folder,
- "chown test-user testfile.txt" does NOT work.
logging in as test-user authenticates _IF_ I include the following line
And then I can login, but I get an error message about no home folder being
it seems that ldap/pam is authenticating the user and the password, but
cannot read the home directory and shell entries.
Can someone suggest a cause for this? Thank you!
