I've spent about an entire week reading and configuring the LDAP plugin for Webmin 1.470. Currently, LDAP authentication works for any LDAP user who SSH's into my server. It looks as if I am on the verge of getting Webmin itself to authenticate through LDAP as well, I can select LDAP users through the
"Convert existing Unix users to Webmin users"
feature within the "Webmin Users" Module, however, after I select an LDAP user from the pop menu and click OK, that user is never added.
I can see all of the LDAP users in this pop up window, but when OK is clicked, webmin tells me that it has skipped adding all of the local users (who really aren't users). here is the text I am referring to:
root being skipped
bin being skipped
daemon being skipped
lp being skipped
mail being skipped
games being skipped
wwwrun being skipped
ftp being skipped
nobody being skipped
messagebus being skipped
haldaemon being skipped
uuidd being skipped
postfix being skipped
ntp being skipped
named being skipped
at being skipped
polkituser being skipped
dhcpd being skipped
suse-ncc being skipped
man being skipped
news being skipped
uucp being skipped
The issue, is that no LDAP user is ever added, or allowed to authenticate. /var/log/messages displays Apr 2 10:05:12 dns2 webmin: Invalid login as adm4 from x.x.x.x
This occurs when I attempt to login using my valid credentials as an LDAP user. I can login with the predefined webmin users fine that don't involve LDAP.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Let me know if you need any more information & thanks in advance!
also, this is running on an opensuse 11.1 server
