Dear all

I am looking into authentication through LDAP using the auth_conf file (we are currently using Apache to handle this). And it looks like, I am stuck at a very early step:

I have started with a fresh checkout of release 16.04
(git clone -b master

some modifications in galaxy.ini (host, port) and:

auth_config_file = config/auth_conf.xml

I start galaxy, and I try to login. In the log file I get:

galaxy.webapps.galaxy.controllers.user DEBUG 2016-07-22 12:41:50,741 ./config/auth_conf.xml galaxy.auth.providers.ldap_ad DEBUG 2016-07-22 12:41:50,741 LDAP authenticate: email is galaxy.auth.providers.ldap_ad DEBUG 2016-07-22 12:41:50,741 LDAP authenticate: ....

This is what I far so good

but further down, I get:

galaxy.auth.providers.ldap_ad DEBUG 2016-07-22 12:41:50,742 LDAP authenticate: could not load ldap module

According to our sysadmin, "python-ldap" is installed on the machine (running Red Hat 7.2). But I assume, it has to be within the galaxy created virtual env, hasn't-it?

Hence I have tried the following

cd <galaxy-root>
. .venv/bin/activate
pip install python-ldap

Is this the right way to do it?

Doing this, I have been running into the following error:

Modules/errors.h:8:18: fatal error: lber.h: No such file or directory
#include "lber.h"

So I guess I have to tell my sysadmin to install "openldap-devel in order to have 'lber.h' on the system?

Or do I have to do something else?

Thank you very much for your help
