I am kinda stumped with this one.
I setup an OpenLDAP server for centralized login to all of the VM servers ... and a test VBOX Ubuntu Desktop.
Getting LDAP authentication to work was not terribly hard.
The thing I cannot figure out is why the server takes my login and allows me access but then bumps to the only unprivileged user on the box.
For example I have a machine (Ubuntu Desktop 11.04) with a user called
User. When I login with my LDAP account as
ianc it lets me but when I go to a prompt and type
whoami it returns
What the heck is going on?
I thought I was logged in as
The same thing happens on my file server which I setup the same test on.
I login and says I am
fs01 not ianc.
Oh yeah I got this picture of my test VBOX desktop
