I have a query, lets take a scenario :
Assume we have 2 servers "Server1" and "Server2" and 2 groups "Admin" and
"ITTech", What is needed is like say when a user "bob" logging
in to "Server1" he will get the group "Admin", but when he logs in to
"Server2" he will get group "ITTech". Also it may vary for different users
like when "Kris" logs in to Server1 he may get a group called "ITTech" and
when he logs in to "Server2" he will get some other group say "Security".
Can it be possible by OpenLDAP ?
IMHO, this is a bad idea. It will specifically be problematic if you have any
files shared/replicated/backed up between servers (e.g. via NFS).
We are using this functionality without any problems. :)
This is feature of nss_ldap.
personals user groups:
first project groups:
second project groups:
If this is achieved then we are planning
to have SUDO files based on the grooups.
It would be much more effective to have your sudo rules in LDAP, and apply a
rule to a set of users/groups to a collection/netgroup of hosts.
