Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to setup authentication from Active Directory in FreeBSD 10.0 using nslcd (nss-pam-ldapd-sasl package) and would like to allow both sAMAccountName and userPrincipalName as valid login attributes in the server.

I don't know if it's possible to use this specific configuration.

Here are my actual mappings in /usr/loca/etc/nslcd.conf

# Do not allow uids lower than 1000 to login (aka Administrator)
nss_min_uid 1000
# Disallow disabled accounts to login
pam_authz_search (!(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))

#filter passwd (&(objectClass=user)(!(objectClass=computer)))
#map passwd uid sAMAccountName
filter passwd (&(objectClass=user)(userPrincipalName=*)(!(objectClass=computer)))
map passwd uid                  userPrincipalName
map passwd uidNumber            objectSid:S-1-5-21-NULL-NULL-NULL
map passwd gidNumber            primaryGroupID
map passwd gecos                displayName
map passwd homeDirectory        "${unixHomeDirectory:-/home/$sAMAccountName}"
map passwd loginShell           "${loginShell:-/bin/tcsh}"

filter group (objectClass=group)
map group cn                    sAMAccountName
map group gidNumber             objectSid:S-1-5-21-NULL-NULL-NULL

I'm not sure if I should modify nslcd or what I'm looking should be achieved with pam.

Thanks in advance.
