Please clarify if these are possible Background: We are planning to deploy 389-ds(formerly Fedora DS) as our core ldap server in a Multi-Master Replication scenario. We will be having set of slave server to cater at different locations. We want to integrate password authentication with MS Active Directory. 389-DS offers PAM Pass-thru plugin, but it has been quite difficult to configure the parameters and kerberos to get that working. Some of the features I am looking are 1. Easy setup of PAM Pass-thru setup. Where 389-ds queries Active Directory for password.If you have PAM Kerberos auth working, you should be able to use PAM Pass thru. I don't know the details though, but I do know that this is one of the primary use cases, to allow simple bind (username/password auth) clients to use their kerberos password.Isn't IPA creating its own Kerberos/kdc server? For my setup, AD is the kerberos server and I want 389-ds to query the AD for password. I do not want to configure kerberos on 389-ds or do I have to do that anyway?.
You do not have to configure kerberos on 389-ds to use pam passthrough.
So If I am right, for 389-ds and AD to communicate and exchange data they both need to be Kerb servers?
I believe you use something like pam_krb5 with 389 pam passthrough, which also requires krb5.confIf that is then do client unix machines need to be configured with krb5.conf?
But you're not using kerberos auth to 389-ds, you are using simple auth, and pam passthrough "passes through" the credentials to kerberos via pam and pam_krb5I am following the HowToKerberos from 389-ds, where you generate the keytab in Windows and register it in DS server.
I haven't seen a case scenario in documentation where PAM Passthru is implemented with AD. And how the Krb5 is configured.Is this same as passsync.msi plugin?1. 2. Syncing new users automatically between AD and 389-ds including UNIX attributes in AD(after installing SFU 3.5). Though Windows Sync agreement does it, we are looking on a finer control over the OU¹s and objectclass/attributes imported.The IPA winsync plugin will add missing posix attributes when syncing a new user entry from AD to IPA. It will not keep them in sync.
It doesn't matter - if you don't want to sync passwords from AD to IPA, you do not use PassSync.msiWe are using Windows server 2008 64-bit. Do we have it compatible?
How can I setup IPA for the above scenario?
I think IPA enables the ipa-winsync plugin by default.
1. 2. Password change in unix world reflect on AD,Yes. IPA winsync will sync password changes from IPA to AD.Is this a case where,1. 2. Netgroups, adding hosts to the Directory server and have a inventory withhostname and IP address and/or perform basic host tasks.Winsync will not sync the netgroups schema.I wanted the unix hosts to be shown in 389-ds. Just like Windows boxes arejoined to AD.
Ok. IPA should handle that.
1. 2. Create ACI¹s such that support team has only access to create ldap accounts and update group memberships. 3. How is the easy is it going to be if upgraded from 1.2.2 to 2.0? Any issues anticipated? I am still going through the vast Admin Guide, release notes, user config guide to get these answers and know more. Also let me know if it is worth waiting till 2.0 Thanks, Prashanth_______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipaemail@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
