I want to configure LDAP auth in DB2. From IBM docs I learned that first I need to configure LDAP authentication in operating system. But in documentation described old way of configuring LDAP for Operating system. RedHat recommends to use only new SSSD tool.

So, I configured it using SSSD (but without SSL, setting FORCELEGACY parameter in authconfig file to YES). Now I can login to system as LDAP user.

But one of the step (step 1.e) in IBM docs assumes that we use old way of LDAP configuring (I think so). So I can't properly configure LDAP authentication in DB2.

Can anyone help me to configure LDAP auth on DB2 9.7 when we use SSSD? I use CentOS 6.3.


For the next user that needs to do this, the correct answer is, if you are using sssd for ldap, then

inside the /etc/pam.d/db2 file created as part of the IBM directions, replace "pam_ldap.so" with "pam_sss.so" and it will work.


It Depend how you can configured your ldap auth, if you set FORCELEGACY=yes in /etc/sysconfig/authconfig and your system will uses the redhat 5 configuration mode, this file /etc/sysconfig/authconfig is for authconfig command, so if you are using sssd, maybe you configured by hand or you got FORCELEGACY=no (default in redhat 6)

The link below can help you, anyway if you give more information about what problem you found, configuring sssd, we can try to help you
