add logging for wrong keys/values set in pam_ldap.conf
Last modified: 2016-04-27 03:19:30 EDT
I think it might be useful adding logs if some keys/values set in pam_ldap.conf are wrong.
Misspelling something is not difficult and having a feedback from the system for having discarded the non-existing key/value would be useful, above all considering that understanding what is the default value if the key is valid, but the value is not, is not always easy.
Just a simple real world example, one of our customers set:
pam_password = expo
and in spites having checked the conf file a few times, he did not spot the switch, hence opened a case with us.
And, I have to say, spotting the switch took a while to me as well...
I am opening it as a bug and not as RFE, because, well, in my opinion not providing any kind of feedbacks to the sysadmin can be considered a bug, but, obviously I can fill the required RFE template if you think otherwise.
Please let me know how I can help
