Description of problem:
authconfig writes bad baseDN for ldap authentication in /etc/ldap.conf and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.2.12-3
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch authconfig
2. select "use ldap" in User Information Configuration and Authentication
3. write dc=my,dc=domain in base DN
base dc=my.dc=domain in /etc/ldap.conf
BASE dc=my.dc=domain in /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
base dc=my,dc=domain in /etc/ldap.conf
BASE dc=my,dc=domain in /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
prevents ldap authentication; breaks ldap clients
Works for me. Are you quite certain that it was typed in correctly?
4.2.12-3 was shipped in RHL 8.0, not 9. Changing version.
