Re: [Freeipa-users] AD trust users cannot login to Solaris



Ok, I sort of have this working now, but there are still some loose ends. 
Comments inline

>>> 2. Setup Solaris properly
>>> NS_LDAP_AUTH=tls:simple
>>> NS_LDAP_CREDENTIAL_LEVEL=proxy
>>> NS_LDAP_BINDDN=uid=solaris,cn=sysaccounts,cn=etc,dc=ipacloud,dc=test
>>> NS_LDAP_BINDPASSWD=ohaimakethissimethingtoughtobreak
>>> NS_LDAP_CACHETTL=0
>>> NS_LDAP_HOST_CERTPATH=/var/ldap

When I added NS_LDAP_HOST_CERTPATH to the ldap_client_file it complained
about that particular setting being invalid.  I think that setting doesn't
exist on Solaris 10?  I had to remove that line.

OK, great, I think the manual copy worked.  The reason is because if  I
delete those 2 .db files I get the following log entries:

[ID 293258 daemon.warning] libsldap: Status: 91  Mesg: createTLSSession:
failed to initialize TLS security (security library: bad database.)
[ID 545954 daemon.error] libsldap: makeConnection: failed to open
connection to ipadc1.ipadomain.net
[ID 687686 daemon.warning] libsldap: Falling back to anonymous, non-SSL
mode for __ns_ldap_getRootDSE. createTLSSession: failed to initialize TLS
security (security library: bad database.)

But if those 2 files I manually copied exist, then those messages don't
happen.

Also, FYI, certutil is not really supported on Solaris 10.  Any download
links to that program are now 404.  It wasn't included in the Solaris 10
cd either.

Yes, yes, and yes :)

OK, I have added the following 2 lines to my pam.conf file and I can now
authenticate AD users:
other   auth sufficient         pam_ldap.so.1
other   account required         pam_ldap.so.1

However, I had to use a slighly different setting when initiating ldap
client:

ldapclient manual -a credentialLevel=proxy -a authenticationMethod=simple

Note that if I chose tls:simple, the bind failed and I received the
following log entries :
Mar  5 13:07:21 ipaclient6-sandbox-atdev-van.ipadomain.net
ldap_cachemgr[650]: [ID 293258 daemon.warning] libsldap: Status: 81  Mesg:
openConnection: simple bind failed - Can't contact LDAP server
Mar  5 13:07:21 ipaclient6-sandbox-atdev-van.ipadomain.net
ldap_cachemgr[650]: [ID 545954 daemon.error] libsldap: makeConnection:
failed to open connection to ipadc1.ipadomain.net
Mar  5 13:07:21 ipaclient6-sandbox-atdev-van.ipadomain.net
ldap_cachemgr[650]: [ID 687686 daemon.warning] libsldap: Falling back to
anonymous, non-SSL mode for __ns_ldap_getRootDSE. openConnection: simple
bind failed - Can't contact LDAP server

So... any ideas why I could bind 'simple' but not 'tls:simple' ?
