More on my password problem
I stumbled on this. Aparently, my password problem is worse than I thought.
The set up:
Server: Solaris 9.0 w/OpenLdap 2.1.22
client: Redhat 8.0 & 9 with default ldap instl.
If (on the client, logged in as the user), I type passwd, I get an
If (as root) I type "id <user>", I get the correct uid, and group
entries. No problem there.
But, if as root, I type "passwd -S <user>", I get: "Unknown user"
So, for some reason, the passwd command is failing to authenticate.
(BTW: The user IS able to log in. So "login" authenticates fine, it's
just passwd that doesn't).
I'd really appreciate any thoughts on this.
