RE: using pam binddn/bindpw w/slapd anonymous access disallowed


try using rootbinddn and putting the password in /etc/ldap.secret or
wherever pam_ldap/nss_ldap was configured to find it. I *think* that
pam_ldap is 'effective user root' and so needs this for binding rather
than the general binddn.

I'm sure someone on this list will let you know if I'm wrong about this.
