Description Klaus Ethgen 2007-05-31 10:32:56 EDT
This is a split of 241657:

When using "auth --enablemd5 --enableshadow --enablecache --enablekrb5 --
enableldap -- ldapserver="ldaps01.ethz.ch" --
ldapbasedn="ou=isg,ou=inf,ou=auth,o=ethz,c=ch" -- enableldaptls" in the 
kickstart the settings for ldap are not working properly. This should produce a 
"uri ldaps://..." but in ldap.conf will be "uri ldap://...".

Also the nsswitch.conf has some nisplus settings which is useless for me as we 
do not use it.
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2008-10-01 05:42:05 EDT
The correct options of authconfig for ldaps is
--enableldap --ldapserver=ldaps://ldaps01.ethz.ch --ldapbasedn="ou=isg,ou=inf,ou=auth,o=ethz,c=ch"

Unfortunately this still needs a fix in RHEL-5 version of nss_ldap to work correctly.

The nisplus settings in nsswitch.conf are harmless.

So as I see, 462549 is a duplicate of this bug, not the way around!

This bug report is from 2007-05-31 and the other is from 2008-09-16.
Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2008-10-01 06:05:46 EDT
What bug is closed as duplicate is decided by the developer according to the info which is included in the bug report not just by looking at the date of the report.
