Trouble assigning user to group in OpenLDAP
« on: September 17, 2012, 04:38:01 PM »
Hello,

I am working on setup LDAP Server and facing issue related to assigning user to a group. Below is the LDAP structure i am using.

I have created Users,Groups and Servers ou's and sub ou's added to the same [bugbase,ftp,samba,svn,tcms,wiki] or Users as well as Groups OU.

Logged in as: cn=Manager,dc=bebolabs,dc=net

+--> dc=bebolabs,dc=net (3)
+--> ou=Groups (6)
| ---> ou=bugbase
| ---> ou=ftp
| ---> ou=samba
| ---> ou=svn
| ---> ou=tcms
| ---> ou=wiki
---> ou=Systems
+--> ou=Users (6)
| ---> ou=bugbase
| ---> ou=ftp
| ---> ou=samba
| ---> ou=svn
| ---> ou=tcms
| ---> ou=wiki

Now i created a user under Users->FTP->username ou and group created under Groups->FTP->groupname ou.

I assigned username under Users->FTP to group under Groups->FTP.

But on login from client machine below error is throwing and user is n

[root@ldapclnt ~]# su - sunny
[COLOR="#FF0000"]id: cannot find name for group ID 500[/COLOR]
[sunny@ldapclnt ~]$ id
[COLOR="#FF0000"]uid=500(sunny) gid=500 groups=500[/COLOR]
[sunny@ldapclnt ~]$


Please help me on this how to fix this.

Below is my ldapgroup.ldif and ldapuser.ldif

objectClass: posixGroup
