Solaris 10 automount against OpenLDAP server

807557Jul 19 2006 — edited Nov 16 2006
Hi ya'll,

Another Solaris question that I'm searching around about...

I'm using Solaris's native LDAP client on Soalris 10 6/06. My LDAP server is an OpenLDAP server under Fedora Core 5. The Solaris client can talk to the server fine, everything is cool except for the fact that automounting isn't working. I'm guessing it's a schema issue but I'm not sure where to go... I'll post a few examples of my config and maybe someone can see something wrong:

From /etc/nsswitch.conf:
automount: files ldap

/etc/auto_master:
/projects auto.projects
/home auto.home
/- auto.direct -rw,hard,intr

from nis.schema file on OpenLDAP server:

attributetype ( 1.3.6.1.1.1.1.26 NAME 'nisMapName'
SUP name )


attributetype ( 1.3.6.1.1.1.1.27 NAME 'NisMapEntry'
EQUALITY caseExactIA5Match
SUBSTR caseExactIA5SubstringsMatch
SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.26{1024} SINGLE-VALUE )


objectclass ( 1.3.6.1.1.1.2.9 NAME 'nisMap' SUP top STRUCTURAL
DESC 'A generic abstraction of a NIS map'
MUST nisMapName
MAY description )


objectclass ( 1.3.6.1.1.1.2.10 NAME 'nisObject' SUP top STRUCTURAL
DESC 'An entry in a NIS map'
MUST ( cn $ NisMapEntry $ nisMapName )
MAY description )

On the LDAP server the automounts are listed as "nisMapName=auto.home" etc.

I read somewhere that in the nis.schema file, all references to "nisMapEntry" need to be changed to all lowercase, ie "nismapentry", but I tried that and restarted the LDAP server, restarted autofs on the client, still nothing. Does anyone know what schema changes need to be made? Or maybe changes that need to be made to something else that I'm not aware of? Or do I need to make any other schema changes to my Solaris 10 native LDAP client as well?

This is a clip from the OpenLDAP log on the OpenLDAP server. It seems like the automount information request is getting through, but maybe the data it returns to Solaris is in an unrecognizable format or something?

Linux clients work out of the box without any config changes (but then again these linux clients come stock with an openldap client so I'm not surprised they would communicate with one of their own kind).

Thanks in advance for any insight!!!

ciao, erich
