Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228734
registering system with PAM/LDAP user
Last modified: 2007-07-31 12:17:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to register a system to satellite with a user that uses PAM LDAP for
authentication rhn_reg and up2date --register fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have experienced this behavior on both Sat 4.20 and 4.15.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure the sat to use PAM LDAP AUTH:
-add pam_auth_service = rhn-satellite to /etc/rhn/rhn.conf
-create a /etc/pam.d/rhn-satellite file:
auth required /lib/security/pam_env.so
auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_ldap.so no_user_check
auth required /lib/security/pam_deny.so
account required /lib/security/pam_ldap.so no_user_check
-edit /etc/ldap.cong to talk to your ldap server
2. Create a user on the satellite and check use PAM auth
3. Run rhn_register form a client machine and use the ldap user you just created
rhn_register crashes machien does not register
Can't reproduce, David & I believe its a problem with the installed satellite.
