I've just installed and configured OpenLDAP 2.4 in CentOS 8 and I'm now creating Groups and it's members for future use.

One of these future use will be LDAP+PAM integration, which is why I want my Groups to have the memberUid attribute in the posixGroup objectClass, which is defined in nis.schema file that's shipped with OpenLDAP:

objectclass ( 1.3.6.1.1.1.2.2 NAME 'posixGroup'
    DESC 'Abstraction of a group of accounts'
    SUP top STRUCTURAL
    MUST ( cn $ gidNumber )
    MAY ( userPassword $ memberUid $ description ) )

But also I'd would like to use the member attribute from the groupOfNames objectClass, which is defined in core.schema:

objectclass ( 2.5.6.9 NAME 'groupOfNames'
    DESC 'RFC2256: a group of names (DNs)'
    SUP top STRUCTURAL
    MUST ( member $ cn )
    MAY ( businessCategory $ seeAlso $ owner $ ou $ o $ description ) )

But if I try to use both of theses objectClasses, I get a LDAP_OBJECT_CLASS_VIOLATION, since both of them are STRUCTURAL (in fact, and I believe that no so long ago posixGroup was AUXILIARY).

How can I use both of theses objectClasses without changing their original specification?

Is there an alternative, can I use "member" attribute or some objectClass other than posixGroup to integrate LDAP with PAM? Or is there another objectClass that's AUXILIARY and has "member" attribute?

The member attribute is very important for my future needs, but I was only going to use posixGroup for PAM integration.

Thanks in advance.

You'll want to use the schema defined in RFC2703bis as opposed to RFC2703 aka nis.schema.

Below is a wide ldif that should be suitable for adding with ldapadd, though I do worry that you're still using slapd.conf rather than slapd-config. (There may be a few modifications to allow substring matches not included in RFC2703bis on thing like automountkey because I'm lazy and like both substring matching and pulling from live configs).

  • Thanks, and I'm not using slapd, I'm using cn=config, I just thought that posting the .schema version of the posixAccount objectClass would be clearer. Is RFC2703bis older or newer then RFC2703bis (aka nis)? Is there an official place where I can get this ldiff? Not that I do not trust you, I just wonder about future updates. – Rodrigo Renie Dec 28 '19 at 19:32

    The first bis draft was published in 2002 about 4 and a half years after RFC2703 was published. To my knowledge it has never been formally adopted. The latest draft, linked in the answer is from 2009 and also contains a .schema version of the ldif above. – 84104 Dec 29 '19 at 20:37
