No, I only have SLES11 SP2 + edir 8.8, I haven’t OES2[/color]
Just as an FYI, OES2 is only on SLES10, OES11 is only on SLES11.
Then What is better or how I must do the authentication: SLES11 against
eDIr or only Samba against eDirectory??[/color]
I’m normally an OES guy having come at this via NetWare, so I haven’t
really worked at those levels directly, but I think I can help guide you
from what I understand of things until someone else happens to join in or
we get things sorted out for you.
We have two directions we can take this from and find where they meet.
From the Samba side, what do the docs say about the users that it
consumes? It looks like it can act like a Microsoft Domain Server (PDC
or BDC) and that it might be able to consume/participate in an existing
Microsoft authentication system, so do you have such that is part of the
equation? How does Samba interact with standard the standard Linux PAM
EDir users & groups can be linked to the standard Linux PAM system with
LUM, but does LUM(Linux User Management) come with eDirectory? Check your
eDir docs for that and if so that may well be the way to go. The other
option is IDM to connect eDir to other systems, but that is likely more
than you are game for at this point.
