Re: serviceSearchDescriptor problem.

Hmm, i kinda figured it out. Since i dont need a 100% ldap environment i just added a group to the sudoers file that matched a group in the LDAP database. And if a user was in that group the system would allow him to use SUDO. It's an easy workaround. Now all i got to do is set it up with postfix and roundcube as a browser based client. Any one have any experience with that?

I'm having a problem setting up an openLDAP database. I've installed it, configured it (that took a while, OpenLDAP should realy supply a script to do it manualy) and set my server to use it for authentication (as well as the /etc/passwd file). But now i want to configure the server to work with the sudoers file so users can use the "sudo" command. Here is where i'm having problems. I folowed this guide:
And i came to the part where i need to insert this code into the database with ldapadd:

dn: ou=SUDOers,dc=prvi-dijak,dc=si
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: SUDOers
serviceSearchDescriptor: sudoers: ou=sudoers,dc=example,dc=com

But here is where i run into a problem. The server always gives out an error, like this:

ldapadd -f sudoWork/sudoMaster.ldif -h -D cn=admin,dc=prvi-dijak,dc=si -W -x
Enter LDAP Password:
adding new entry "ou=SUDOers,dc=prvi-dijak,dc=si"
ldap_add: Undefined attribute type (17)
        additional info: serviceSearchDescriptor: attribute type undefined

And i have no idea why. I also tried to do it manualy. I added the organizationalUnit with "phpLDAPadmin" but i can not find the serviceSearchDescriptor attribute anywhere. Could you advise me on how to fix this problem?

Good day, Miha Krajnc.

Lep pozdrav, Miha Krajnc.
