Yes this is a known bug. Could you please retest after the next update release.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-03-14 03:52:52 EST
Wrong. It is not fixed in the packages for the next update release. I will fix
for the future updates of authconfig.

'enableldap also do enableldapauth, should it be like that,' I don't see this
behaviour here. And it shouldn't behave like this.
Comment 3 Marc Olivier Chouinard 2005-03-14 08:07:53 EST
ok maybe I was wrong for the enableldap, I've try it again latter.  Maybe once
you  there, you could add in the documentation that you can specify the password
for the join domain within the --winbindjoin=USERNAME%PASSWORD

Also shouldnt it have bring --joindomain= instead or something ? (since it a
winbind AND ads feature).

Also I really like this new version, it help in that I dont need to modify
everything.  The next thing to add is a ntpconfig, since timing is extremly
important when talking with an ADS domain, a simple ntpconfig utility to make it
update it time from the ads server could be very usefull. (if time is not sync
before the net join, net join hang then and WILL FAIL)

Oh and once your at it, would be great for you to add this in the authconfig :
session     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/

beable to configure that into the /etc/pam.d/system-auth, because if I do
manually, and call authconfig, it will remove that settings (and I find it very
usefull(EXCEPT that mkhomedir doesnt run as a high user level, so /home need to
be nearly world writable I think)

Also adding : obey pam restrictions = yes into the smb.conf AND session   
required     pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel umask=0022 into /etc/pam.d/samba
make that when any user connect to my samba server, his home directory is
created automaticly.

Anyway these are just small idea that make this more complete.  Ive done a 120
line script that configure my system, but this authconfig upgrade from RHEL3 to
4 really reduced my code.  But having this, and maybe even if posible adding
simple stuff to automaticly make ldap + samba to work(at this point, nearly
everything is done), Im sure this would be a major feature to propagate (Btw,
this is a feature for NOW, not in the next 3 year release)

I guess Redhat doesn't fix bug faster than Microsoft.  You should have more
offen updates... it being 7+ months

authconfig accumulated.
