Re: Can't log in from Solaris (9) Client(s)

Actually, I didn't use any migration tools. This is all scratch built. So I'm banging my shins on a lot of sharp corners getting this built.
Again, thank you to the "shadowAccount" tip. That worked great. THANK YOU!!!!!! Logins from Solaris now work.

Now it's on to the mysteries of Automounter, and making it work with both Solaris 9, and RedHat. (I've been avoiding this one...).
I may be back!

Solaris requires that each account has objectclass: shadowAccount. Add this objectclass to each account and all will be well. A small adjustment to the PADL script will prevent this happening again.

Good luck with the solaris clients, theres nothing too tricky...


In short:
If logged into a client as root, I can identify a user:

#> id [user-name]

works, and it returns the expected values.
But trying login fails with "Login Incorrect"
So it's recognises the ueser, but is not getting the password?

I can put the config file on a web site, if anyone needs to see those. But I'm hoping that the above output will provide enough clues.

The setup:

OpenLDAP 2.1.22
Server OS: Solaris 9

Client OS:
	RedHat 9
	Solaris 9

Any assistance will, as always, be greatly appreciated. I've come a long way with this installation. Just a little more to go!

Thankx again!
