gdm not working for non-local users
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:13 EST
I have networked users, with nss-ldap for name resolution and kerberos for
authentication, but only local users are allowed to perform a graphical login,
even after they have performed a console login.
I have selinux enabled, in permissive mode
Created attachment 305491 [details]
tail of /var/log/messages
So an interesting part of the output is:
May 15 16:18:05 cool gdm-session-worker: GSSAPI Error: Unspecified GSS
failure. Minor code may provide more information (No credentials cache found)
May 15 16:18:05 cool gdm-session-worker: nss_ldap: failed to bind to LDAP
server ldap://carpanta.home.local/: Local error
May 15 16:18:05 cool gdm-session-worker: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP
server - Server is unavailable
Nalin, any idea what could cause those types of messages?
Please apologize, as the problem does not really exists.
Due to unknown reasons, the nscd process was dead, so gdm was trying to read a
credentials file with permissions only for nscd user.
