Re: Authenticate Mac OS X users against OpenLDAP on Debian

This one pretty much describes what you need to do:

We added a Mac to our network, and I would like the network users to be

I configured the LDAP access on the Mac, and it can indeed see the users
and groups from the openldap server. But when I try to login after
clicking "Other...", the login window shakes around, and nothing happens.

The server logs show the connection from the Mac and it's searches (

(Logging is configured with Parse, Stats, Stats2, Sync. Is there
something else I should add to logging that may be useful?)

On the Mac, I didn't find anything looking helpful in the logs
(http://pastebin.com/yRreFQrJ), but maybe I don't know what to look for.

I found many instructions on the Internet which concentrate on mounting
user homes from the server over NFS. This is NOT what we want. Users
would be authenticated with openldap, but have their homes locally on
the Mac, like normal users.

I also saw many mentions of adding the apple schema, and I have done
that. But maybe I now need to actually use parts of that schema in the
user records?

Thanks for any help...
