Description jeff+redhat 2006-03-16 22:50:19 UTC
Description of problem:
It would be nice if the version of sudo distributed with RHEL had the LDAP
option for sudo. Right now you either need to maintain a seperate sudoers file
for each server or distribute an updated file to every server when any change is
made. If the LDAP option was available. At the least please provide a second
build that can be installed instead of the main sudo package. (This is the
approach debian has taken. It has both a sudo and a sudo-ldap package. See

The upstream page about ldap support is at

This request has beem already rejected for RHEL4. See bug #170848. The RHEL5
seems like better idea.

I'm getting an access denied error on that bug. Can you either open it up for
access or tell me what it says?

Comment 3 Karel Zak 2006-03-16 23:23:34 UTC
It seems like risk do this kind of change for package like sudo when we talk
about __update__ to already stable distribution (like RHEL4). We prefer only
real bug fixes. I think you understand that reliability and stability is more
important. We will probably support sudo+ldap in RHEL5. Sorry.

Comment 4 jeff+redhat 2006-03-16 23:25:26 UTC
When I filled this bug I wasn't talking about adding it to RHEL4. I was
suggesting that it be supported when RHEL5 was released.
