Actually, those are general questions to anyone on this thread. Would you be prompted with a login? but each LDAP server I have built lately has been a headache (since it's been just enough time since the last one that I forget to modify the boot order). his comment is here

My system without these changes hangs at login, i can ping it but can not login.

I also moved from stable to the release branch. libnss-ldap does provide for 'nss_initgroups_ignoreusers', which allows for nss to skip ldap in intigroups() for the specified groups.

Exim seems to be very specific in it's user and group permissions, so if he UID or GID is different from what was originally compiled in the rpm, Exim panics. The solution was to change the host line in the /etc/ldap.conf file to: host where is a working ldap server in the network. I did it the way that has WORKED with Feisty Fawn and Debian Etch before.

You can create one though the Users & Groups preference pane, but that will leave you with an additional user account showing up in the user interface. http://www.lovschall.dk/2010/01/moving-to-exim-from-sendmail-as-mta-on.html Yes, my password is: Forgot your password?

All the time very problematic upgrading. And what about a password?

This was misleading, as the login prompt was displayed as soon as possible, with Upstart continuing through it's startup measures. But this is another issue. I have attached my config files.

Now part of this process requires you to create a user and group that the exim daemon will run as. Until this issue is properly fixed, workarounds are the same as for sometimes disconnected users (eg laptops): 1. We're only authenticating as a client here so here's an entry to add which retrieves the username and password from our configuration file: plain: driver = plaintext public_name = PLAIN client_send

The file should contain a single line with the destination email address. My initial work-around was simply moving SLAPD to start as S13 in rcS.d, right after networking. To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below. The LDAP authentication libraries now use the new unified configuration file ${newfn}, and no longer use ${pamfn} or ${nssfn}.

In the case where you want to relax that requirement, a system can be configured to use a soft bind policy. :-Dustin Changed in libnss-ldap: status: Confirmed → Incomplete Hilton Gibson Note that when a took a look in the /etc/passwd file, the UID for Exim was set to 503 and the GID 504.
