Description Bastien Nocera 2005-12-28 13:55:05 UTC
1. Launch authconfig
2. Setup "Local authorisation is sufficient", and LDAP authentication
3. Try to login as a local user with the LDAP server down: doesn't work

/etc/pam.d/system-auth doesn't contain the line:
account     sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_localuser.so

Adding that line makes 3. work

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2006-01-02 21:25:09 UTC
The authconfig in RHEL 3 supports this only as command line option
--enablelocauthorize and I've verified again that it works fine.

Alternatively 'USELOCAUTHORIZE=yes' can be added to the
/etc/sysconfig/authconfig before running authconfig. Simply deleting the
USELOCAUTHORIZE=no line doesn't change anything.

My apologies, ran my tests on a RHEL4 system without realising. Thanks for the
