I have root access to a RHEL6 system and I want to use the corporate ldap server where I work for user authentication.
authconfig-tui and checked
[*] Use LDAP and left
[*] Use Shadow Passwords checked, then I checked
[*] Use LDAP Authentication then click the Next button and left
[ ] Use TLS unchecked and set
Server: ldap://ldap.mycompanysdomainname.com and set the
Base DN to what the ldap admin guy told me to use.
But I can only log in with the password I set locally on the box for my user account and cannot log on if I use that password that is stored on the ldap server.
Isn't there something I need to do in the
/etc/passwd file of the
/etc/shadow files ... something like change the passwd field to
email@example.com or something like that?
