Description of problem:
I have configured LDAP on our RHEL4 server. I can logon to the server from a local TTY session, I can logon from a Windows workstation with Samba, I can use LDAP on the server to validate the logon on a RH Linux 9 workstation, I can send email to users in the LDAP database, etc. What I cannot do is logon using GDM on the LDAP server itself.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup LDAP on RHEL4
2. Enable LDAP logon with authconfig
3. Try to logon with a user in the LDAP database
Actual Results: Login screen displays a Bad Username or Password Message
log has the following entries:
Apr 12 08:21:43 cruiser2005 gdm(pam_unix): check pass; user unknown
Apr 12 08:21:43 cruiser2005 gdm(pam_unix): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=:0 ruser= rhost=
Apr 12 08:21:43 cruiser2005 gdm(pam_unix): could not identify user (from getpwnam(jshanks))
Apr 12 08:21:43 cruiser2005 gdm-binary: Couldn't set acct. mgmt for jshanks
Expected Results: should login.
A tty login gives the following:
Apr 12 08:20:31 cruiser2005 login(pam_unix): check pass; user unknown
Apr 12 08:20:31 cruiser2005 login(pam_unix): authentication failure; logname=LOGIN uid=0 euid=0 tty=tty1 ruser= rhost=
Apr 12 08:20:31 cruiser2005 -- jshanks: LOGIN ON tty1 BY jshanks
