I'm trying to implement SSO using Samba-3.2.4 with an LDAP backend. The
intent is to use ldap directly for FBSD clients and Samba for MS Windows
The LDAP server (openldap 2.4.11) is running on a FBSD 6.3 server and is
setup and seems to be working fine, I can log in locally or through SSH
using the ldap accounts.
I'm working on the first client which is a FBSD 7.1 machine. I can use
ldap to login on this machine, but I'm having issues with logging in
using kdm. I can see all the users both from local files and from ldap,
but I can't log in using either. Even when kdm won't allow a login, I
can <ctrl><alt><F8> and get a normal login shell and login with local or
ldap accounts. The ldap lines are included in my /etc/pam.d/kde file.
If I remove ldap from the nsswitch.conf file it will start working with
local logins on kdm again.
I ran into a bug report from last summer that appears to still be open
with exactly the same issue
Does anyone know a workaround or have a patch for the issue? I can
provide config files and such if anyone thinks it might help.
