RE: AIX authentication on OpenLDAP

Title: RE: AIX authentication on OpenLDAP

we have a module like nss_ldap that we created using the openldap libs...  it doesnt do the schema mapping as i refused to write anything to ibm's specs!!!  it took me a while before they would admit the module they have doesnt talk to anything but secureway...

Both our LDAP/NIS gateway (AIX version) and nss_ldap support the IBM
AIX SecureWay schema.

To configure nss_ldap to use SecureWay, ensure you configure it with
--enable-schema-mapping and have the following in ldap.conf:

nss_map_objectclass posixAccount aixAccount
nss_base_passwd ou=aixaccount,?one
nss_map_attribute uid userName
nss_map_attribute gidNumber gid
nss_map_attribute uidNumber uid
nss_map_attribute userPassword passwordChar
nss_map_objectclass posixGroup aixAccessGroup
nss_base_group ou=aixgroup,?one
nss_map_attribute cn groupName
nss_map_attribute uniqueMember member
pam_login_attribute userName
pam_filter objectclass=aixAccount
