RE: missing user name

We are using a product called Likewise, which was purchased by beyond trust.  I don’t know if I mentioned it before but the system works on the other rhel nodes we have.

I’m looking at a problem that has me really scratching my head.


I’ve got a rhel 5.4 system that’s using likewise and active directory to authenticate users, at least ones that are not defined locally.  Locally defined users work just fine, but any user that is defined in the active directory server is showing up in events as “unknown(uid)” the uid appears to be filled out correctly, and if the user is defined locally as well as in active directory it works just fine, but that kind of defeats the purpose.  Also failed logins are showing up correctly, but I can’t figure out what they have done to their system to cause this.  Can anyone give me a little direction on where I should look to determine what’s actually going on.  I haven’t been able to determine how the system actually resolves the user names.


Don’t know if this is important but we are using the prelude plugin and where we notice the discrepancy is in the output from the prelude-manager, I have not looked to see if it’s wrong in the aureords.
