In my authconfig setup, I always use :

groups would also be included, but no luck.

My LDAP schema looks like this:

LDAP schema: o=Directory (2), ou=groups(2) ...

I use ldap with a manual config, not using authconfig. Note this is not redhat/centos, but ubuntu and debian, but the config many be similar. (I use pam_ldap and nss_ldap)

I have a line in the ldap.conf which looks like this : nss_base_group ou=group, o=Mydirectory

  • thanks ............ any details on how the base_group parameter works?
