We have LDAP and NFS setup in the lab. The lab has 16 machines and a server. All the LDAP users home directory is present in the server. Whenever, the LDAP user logs in from any of the 16 machines, his home is presented from the server in the client machine through the NFS automounting.
In all the client machines, we have installed virtualbox and created a group as vboxusers which has all the LDAP users. So, whenever the LDAP user logs in any of the client machine and runs virtual box, he will be able to use the Virtual Box.
However, in one of the machine after the fresh installation of RHEL and VirtualBox, when I run the VirtualBox as the LDAP user, I am getting the "guest OS inaccessible" error. I thought it might be some permission issue and so, I reset the permissions to the vboxusers in that machine.
However, on further investigation, we found out that the LDAP users are actually not assigned to the group "vboxusers" but rather to some other group. How can this be possible, as I copied the LDAP and NFS configuration files from the working machines in the lab and used the same files in the newly installed machine?
