Been banging my head against the wall on this one for a few days, trying to get 
a workable configuration for HP ILO to authenticate via FreeIPA.

I have a standard rhel6 environment (64 bit 6.4) with freeipa server 

The following works for me......

HP ILO4 Firmware 1.22
Default Directory Schema
Directory Server Address: fqdn_of_myfreeipaserver
Directory Server LDAP Port: 636
Directory User Context 1: cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=mydomain,dc=com
Directory Groups: cn=sys_admins,cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=mydomain,dc=com

....but only if I login with my full dn....

Username: uid=less,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=mydomain,dc=com

The test settings button in the ILO works only with the full dn.

It doesn't work if I use the uid (less), or the cn (Les Stott).

I can then login to ILO with ....
Username: uid=less,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=mydomain,dc=com

If I try to login with the cn, Les Stott I see an error in the logs...

[13/Jan/2014:22:36:29 -0500] ipalockout_postop - [file ipa_lockout.c, line 
473]: Failed to retrieve entry "CN=Les 
Stott,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=mydomain,dc=com": 32

I've read a lot of things about getting this to work. Apparently there are 
issues with HP ILO requiring the username in cn format but its in uid format in 
freeipa. You should also be able to login with your cn, but that doesn't work.

I had a crack at trying Kerberos authentication as well, but it doesn't work 
and errors with "Additional Pre-authentication required".

Has anyone successfully been able to get HP ILO to work with FreeIPA such that 
you can login with just the username (i.e. "less") or the CN (i.e. "Les Stott")?

Are schema changes required?

Alternatively has anyone been able to get HP ILO to work with Kerberos auth to 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
