Solaris 8 + OpenLDAP + Automount
I've been on the LDAP road wih Solaris 8 for a few months
now. I've managed to get auth/auth (passwd & group) as
well as automount (auto_master, auto_home) working with
the iPlanet LDAP directory server. About a month ago, I
finally grew weary of its heavyweight, all-encompassing
approach and decided to switch to OpenLDAP.
Of course, as many of you know, the LDAP client-side stuff
that comes with the Solaris 8 distribution is very poorly
documented and seems to make a number of iPlanet-centric
assumptions. Nonetheless, with the help of The Net, I've
gotten passwd & group functionality with Solaris 8 + OpenLDAP,
but automount functionality is eluding me. I'm using the
exact same directory entries that I used when I had this
stuff working with the iPlanet DS, and it's just not working.
The automount-related entries in the directory look something
Once again, this setup worked with the iPlanet DS, but not with
the OpenLDAP DS. It's quite frustrating, considering that I thought
that once I had the passwd&group stuff working, I could just start
shoveling maps in. Oh, well.
Anyhow, If anyone has related experience or creative ideas, I'd
greatly appreciate any breadcrumbs you can toss my way.
