Configure LDAP

We will asume that the FQDN based DN base is dc=geni,dc=net

Setting up LDAP server

These need to be fixed - we are copying all the neccessary files and should not need anything here

  1. Edit /etc/ldap.conf
    1. Check that you have a proper URI (round line 30):
      uri ldap://
    2. Uncommend line for host attribute:
      pam_check_host_attr yes
  2. Add these two schemas to your ldap by copying to schema directory (/etc/ldap/slapd.d/cn=config/cn=schema)
    cd  /etc/ldap/slapd.d/cn\=config/cn\=schema
  1. Import initial group and user
    cd /etc/ldap
    ldapadd -vvv -x -D cn=admin,dc=geni,dc=net -H ldap:/// -W -f init.ldif
  1. Fix the configuration for LDAP for phpldapadmin:
    edit /etc/phpldapadmin/config.php and change dc=example,dc=com to dc=geni,dc=net
  2. Point the Firefox web browser to http://<ip>/phpldapadmin. Set password for group admin user (add attribute → Password → set password → update object)
  1. Make sure you can access the service with admin credentials:
       ldapsearch -x   -b "dc=geni,dc=net"  "objectClass=organizationalRole"
       ldapsearch -x   -b "dc=geni,dc=net"  "objectClass=organizationalUnit"
       ldapsearch -x   -b "dc=geni,dc=net"  "objectclass=organizationalUnit"
       ldapsearch -x   -b "dc=geni,dc=net"  "objectClass=posixGroup"
       ldapsearch -x localhost -D "cn=admin,dc=geni,dc=net" -W -b "dc=geni,dc=net" uid=*

Configure the client

  1. Edit the /etc/ldap.conf file to configure the ldap client.
        base dc=geni,dc=net
        uri ldap://
        ldap_version 3
        rootbinddn cn=admin,dc=geni,dc=net
        pam_password md5
        nss_initgroups_ignoreusers backup,bin,daemon,games,gnats,irc,libuuid,libvirt- qemu,list,lp,mail,man,messagebus,news,ntp,postfix,proxy,root,sshd,statd,sync,sys,syslog,usbmux,uucp,www-data
  1. The /etc/nsswitch.conf file should have the follow non comment lines:
        passwd:         files ldap compat
        group:          files ldap compat
        shadow:         files compat
        hosts:          files dns
        networks:       files
        protocols:      db files
        services:       db files
        ethers:         db files
        rpc:            db files
        netgroup:       nis
  1. Copy or create the /etc/ldap.secret file. It should contain the ldap password in clear text.
  2. Finally add the follow line to the /etc/sudoers file (note this is done with the visudo command).
        %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
        %sysadmin ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL

This has to be done manually.
