Description Russell Miller 2010-06-05 00:30:33 UTC
Description of problem:

on a base install, authconfig will not configure for ldap under 13.  Does under 12.

The ldap.conf file (which I can provide if needed) works just fine under 12.  An identical one under 13 does not.  

On further investigation authconfig drops some pam_ldap stuff into the pam.d files under 12, and doesn't do so under 13.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Run authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5 --enablemkhomedir --enableldap --enableldapauth --enablelocauthorize --enablesysnetauth --enablesssd --updateall
2. Watch the pam files NOT get configured for ldap, and sssd isn't configured right either.
3. A similar command (minus the 13 specific stuff) works just fine in Fedora 12.

Actual results:

ldap doesn't work.

Expected results:

ldap works.

Additional info:

Let me know if you need config files.

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2010-06-07 07:00:51 UTC
This is by design. Authconfig currently prefers SSSD instead of the pam_ldap.

Also you must not use --enablesssd if you do not want to configure the sssd.conf manually.
