Description Christoph Galuschka 2012-09-16 16:40:04 EDT
Description of problem:
The howto /usr/share/doc/openssh-ldap-5.3p1/HOWTO.ldap-keys seems to contain typos that affect the usability of the HWOWTO:

The HOWTO suggests to include the following line in sshd_config :

AuthorizedKeysCommand "/usr/libexec/openssh/ssh-ldap-wrapper"

The correct line is :

AuthorizedKeysCommand /usr/libexec/openssh/ssh-ldap-wrapper

Without "". When using "", sshd skip the ldap-warpper and directly tries to read the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install package openssh-ldap
2. search for 'AuthorizedKeys' in the HOWTO mentioned above
Actual results:

Expected results:
