Solaris System login using LDAP user account
Posted on 2003-03-26
I have a set of client and server, both with Solaris 9 OS. I have setup the iPlanet Directory Server in the server.
I can successfully using ldapsearch to search information using both proxyagent and the username.
However, when i use the login command in the client. The user fail to login. I can see that there is request for the user information from the server log as well as snooping. Suitable information is also replied to the client.
I've tried both the pam_unix with crypt password encryption and pam_ldap with simple password. But failed.
I wonder how the client could set up those user-related information such as home directory. Does it do it automatically? Or do i need to set up the user environment in the client beforehand?
