I need to setup a radius server with active directory authentication, on a RHEL 6.5 server. I have been following this guide.

As per the guide, I have made necessary configurations which are as follows:


        workgroup = WORKGROUP-NAME-HERE
        security = ads
        password server = PASSWORD-SERVER-HERE
        realm = REALM-HERE
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups


 default = FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log
 kdc = FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log
 admin_server = FILE:/var/log/kadmind.log

 default_realm = REALM-HERE
 dns_lookup_realm = false
 dns_lookup_kdc = false
 ticket_lifetime = 24h
 renew_lifetime = 7d
 forwardable = true


Then, joined the domain successfully.


exec ntlm_auth {
        wait = yes
        program = "/usr/bin/ntlm_auth --request-nt-key --domain=DOMAIN-HERE --username=%{mschap:User-Name} --password=%{User-Password}"

/etc/raddb/sites-enabled/default & /etc/raddb/sites-enabled/inner-module:

authenticate {

After all these configurations, I made sure that samba and winbind are running.

But, as soon as I executed radiusd -X, it displayed an error below:

rlm_eap: SSL error error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory
rlm_eap_tls: Error reading certificate file /etc/raddb/certs/server.pem
rlm_eap: Failed to initialize type tls
/etc/raddb/eap.conf[17]: Instantiation failed for module "eap"
/etc/raddb/sites-enabled/default[313]: Failed to load module "eap".
/etc/raddb/sites-enabled/default[252]: Errors parsing authenticate section.

Where am I going wrong?


Commenting out the line make_cert_command = "${certdir}/bootstrap" in /etc/raddb/eap.conf file corrected the error.
