Hi All,

I've lurked in the list history and cannot find anyone saying they have gotten 
login restrictions working with Solaris 10 u8. Has anyone on here successfully 
configured login restrictions on Solaris 10 u8 through u11? I'm looking for 
specific instructions from someone who has gotten this to work before.

The two main routes to login restrictions I could find online are Netgroups or 
conditional ldap queries in ldapclient

I initially tried netgroups but wasn't sure how to trouble shoot when it didn't 
work. There don't seem to be any user-land tools to query netgroups and further 
investigation turned up an issue with OpenLDAP. It seems the built-in Solaris 
10 ldap client expects schema RFC2307bis and not the OpenLDAP standard RFC2307 
(explanation here 
http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-software/200501/msg00309.html). does 
anyone know if this issue applies to IPA?  Or how I check?

The alternative of passing a restrictive query to ldapclient seems like a good route but doesn't seem 
to work. The common solution when using the old SunOne directory server was to pass the ldapclient 
(command line ldap configuration tool) an option like 
"passwd:ou=people,o=myorg,c=de?one?(isMemberof=cn=unixadmins,ou=groups,o=myorg,c=de)" (from 
here https://community.oracle.com/thread/2014224?start=0&tstart=0)  which is supposed to restrict 
account checking to only people in ou=people,p=myorg,c=de who are also members of 
cn=unixadmins,ou=groups,o=myorg,c=de. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work in IPA, first of all 
because there is no "isMemberof" attribute to a user, but also doesn't work on other 
attributes like uid or uidNumber. One possible explanation I've found is that these attributes are not 
indexed, but I have no idea if this is correct or how to add them to be indexed.

Has anyone else solved this? I just need to be able to allow only a specific user group 
to log in to the host, unfortunately the ssh directive "AllowGroups" is not 
good enough, this has to be system wide as we also have samba and some other services 
that rely on system authentication.

Can anyone be of some help?


Did you try this?
