RHEL 6.3 – LDAP Series – Part 3 : LDAP Configuration With Encrypted Communication using TLS/SSL


I have started unixadminschool.com ( aka gurkulindia.com) in 2009 as my own personal reference blog, and later sometime i have realized that my leanings might be helpful for other unixadmins if I manage my knowledge-base in more user friendly format. And the result is today's' unixadminschool.com. You can connect me at - https://www.linkedin.com/in/unixadminschool/

    Hi Sir

    Used above method and setup LDAp server on RHEL 6.4.
    When i use nslcd on client i am able to see LDAP users but when i used sssd i dont see any LDAP user.Created certificated and placed them as per plan mentioned.
    Testing this with strace…just to make sure if i am missing out something.

    just to explain my setup

    i am using my ldap server as CA server.
    so i am using
    server1 :- as LDAp and CA server
    server2 :- as LDAp client.

    in this blog you asked to edit nslcd.conf file and restart service….but if i want 2 use sssd with certificates….bit confused.

    it started working…..
    how can i check and confirm if there is handshaking going on with certificates…..dont see anything in messages file.
    checked in /var/log/sssd nothing there…..
    not using nslcd.conf but sssd.conf file only.Able to login with ldap user.

    Thanks for plan :-)
