    OL/RHEL ldap-client

      Hi all,

      we try to use a LDAP(Novell EDir) to auth local linux users.

       

      Following some docs and how to´s there pop up some questions.

       

      1. NSS / PAM

      - Do we need only one of these mechs or does we need to configure both methods ?

       

      2. /etc/ldap.conf | /etc/openldap/ldap.conf

      - How to understand this ? Why there are two config files ?

      - Does we need to configure both of them ?

       

      3. nscd

      - Is it right that we need also the nscd if we use nss ? or do we need it also for PAM ?

       

      greetings Till
