Re: user authentication on irix 6.5.20 with ldap?

Hello Markus...

you need to tell uns how to contruct the maps from the ldap data. take a
look at:
particularly the SCHEMA DEFINITION section of /var/ns/ldap.conf

Irix is actually pretty easy to figure out once you get your head around
the different name service technique. use nsadmin to flush and restart
the nsd after each change to the config file. Note also the regsub to
strip out {CRYPT}:
regsub USERPASSWORD{{crypt\}|{CRYPT\}}{}

its also worth hiding user passwords:
table           passwd.byname
filter_lookup   (&(OBJECTCLASS=POSIXACCOUNT)(UID=%s))

dont hold out hope of doing anything fancy like TLS tho!


ps strongly recommend upgrading openldap server to 2.1.23
