Setting Up LDAP Client for Ubuntu 9.04

Before I showed how to set the ldap client on Centos , however Ubuntu has some differences.


# apt-get install libpam-ldap libnss-ldap nss-updatedb libnss-db

Set LDAP server


Set search Base


LDAP version 3

Local database (NO)

LDAP requires login (YES/NO)

go /etc/ldap.conf and add

nss_base_passwd ou=People,dc=example
nss_base_shadow ou=People,dc=example
nss_base_group ou=Groups,dc=example

Then go to /etc/nsswitch.conf

and modify the following lines

passwd: compat [SUCCESS=return] ldap
group: compat [SUCCESS=return] ldap
shadow: compat [SUCCESS=return] ldap
