cimuser -l fails
Last modified: 2012-04-02 08:29:39 EDT
Description of problem:
# cimuser whichever option fails with:
Failed to list the users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16 (tog-pegasus-2.11.1-1.fc16.i686)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su -
2. You may have to yum install tog-pegasus
2. cimuser -a -u <your existing local login account> -w <any password>
[root@victor ~]# cimuser -a -u philippe -w BetweenMeAndYou Failed to add user.
# cimuser -l should list philippe
Regression with previous CIM versions unless I missed something. No man avail on cimuser. Prevents me from running http://vouters.dyndns.org/WBEMApp
No indication on the Web where to look at and cure this problem. Important note: This Fedora 16 computer is an upgrade since Fedora Core 4. So the informations contained on the disk have lived.
PAM is used for OpenPegasus authentication in Fedora and you don't need to use cimuser command at all (OpenPegasus user management mechanism is automatically disabled when compiled with PAM support).
See /etc/Pegasus/access.conf for user management.
Thank you so much Red Hat for your response. PAM support was the change I was indeed missing. My http://vouters.dyndns.org/WBEMApp application now works again as expected. Instead of granting guest WBEM read access to /root/cimv2 via cimuser, I just had to do:
# cimauth -a -u guest -n root/cimv2 -R
and it did the trick.
Thank you so much for the high quality of your support.
