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.
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.
