Automount using LDAP on Fedora Core 5

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Dear members of this mailing list,

I have a rather odd question: Can anyone help me get automount version
4.1.4-33 to work with LDAP on a Fedora Core Release 5?
(Fedora Core Release 5 is by now somewhat 16 years old, but for internal
reasons it is still needed and cannot be replaced easily)

The background to this request is as follows:
I am currently migrating from NIS to LDAP; therefore, I have migrated
the automount maps, which were previously stored on the NIS server, to
LDAP using the schema defined in RFC2307bis. So far, automount has
worked for every machine I have migrated. However, when I migrated the
Fedora Core 5 box, I could not get the autofs daemon to work.
This seems odd to me because on another (older) machine, automount works
in conjunction with pam_ldap in version 4.1.3-238.

Also, running "/usr/lib/autofs/autofs-ldap-auto-master" shows all the
correct keys from the auto.master map. However, trying to access a share
just results in a log message saying "failed to mount /some/mount".
Looking at the LDAP server logs, I can see that the master map and its
keys are requested, but there are no follow-up requests for the other

It looks to me like I am either missing some crucial configuration or
there is a bug in this version. As I could not find anything for the
latter, I suspect some configuration might be wrong or missing.

Does anyone have any idea what might be missing?
