Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199240
User cant mount volumes when system is connected to an LDAP Server
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:46:07 EST
Description of problem:
When a system is connected to LDAP users can't mount volumes like CDROM's,
USBSticks and floppies. Even local users in the right groups (Or users that are
in ALL groups for that matter) can't mount a volume via gnome-mount or the
nautilis interface. When the system is disconnected from LDAP (removed ldap from
nsswitch and pam) users can mount volumes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect system to an LDAP server (Via system-auth-config or authconfig)
2. Try to mount a volume with gnome-mount or in nautilus
You get the (very descriptive :-) ) error "Cannot mount volume"
The volume should have been mounted in /media/
I don't have much info because even on debug nothing shows up in the logs.
strace on gnome-mount doesn't reveal much either.
