Description José de Mattos 2006-11-08 09:52:52 EST
Description of problem:

I configure FC6 to autenticate users vía ldap and using tls, i can configure
this ok.
When i use for example shell, the user id not appears:
 for example if i have a user called toto, in a sesion for this user, in shell
 the user are not defined, appears "[I have no name!@tux ~]#" and not "[toto@tux ~]"
So, look for service nscd and is down, but when i start him, i can't autenticate
 my users again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

nscd (GNU libc) 2.5
Comment 1 Doug Ledford 2006-11-28 17:02:14 EST
Lam isn't related to nscd at all, changing component to glibc.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2006-11-28 17:07:25 EST
Most likely you configured ldap incorrectly, the user under which nscd is running
(usually nscd user) needs to be able to query the ldap server.
Comment 3 José de Mattos 2006-11-29 15:05:19 EST
¿can i specify in "/etc/nscd.conf" that this user is a ldap root bind?
¿if i can do this, how nscd knows his password (he take from "/etc/ldap.secret")?

Comment 4 José de Mattos 2006-11-30 09:55:20 EST
hi, i resolve the problem, i used nscd default configuration that he use a nscd
count like server user, to fix i comment the lines "server-user nscd" and
"stat-user nocpulse".

Thanks for your help!!!!

PD: sorry for put this problem in bug seccion, and again... a lot of thanks!!! ;)
