Centralized Authentication

Title: Centralized Authentication


I'm trying to use LDAP to perform centralized authentication.

My environment is Red Hat 80 Linux on an HP Proliant DL380 G3 servers.

I've installed BDB 4.1.25 and OpenLDAP 2.1.17.  Also, I've used the PADL migration tools to convert /etc/passwd, etc/shadow, and /etc/group to LDAP.

What I don't know yet is how to have the process run operationally.

In AIX and Solaris, there appear to be parameters (-R/r) in the user maintenance commands (mkuser, useradd, passwd, etc.) that support updating the LDAP database instead of the local user files.

Do similar options exist in Linux?  Or are there other ways to do this?

Thanx for any assisatance you can provide.
