Thanks Richard for replying.
I actually did the strace on slapd a while ago and it went through with
a lot of info and at the end it put out the same NSS error message!
There might be
a clue buried in the strace output that would shed some
light on this problem.
thing I noticed was that when I did a clean re-installation followed by
When you say "clean re-installation" do you mean rm -rf
when I picked the user and group root instead of fedora-ds,
the start-slapd started as root without any problem! However, the httpd
wouldn't start. If however, during the setup, I pick any other non-root
user, say, fedora-ds for the directory server, the setup would fail
with NSS error, at that point it would hang!
If I do the setup as fedora-ds user, it goes through fine. Everything
works ok. So, after that, I did a clean re-installation as root, and did
the setup as recommended by the documentation -- the directory server
runs as user/group fedora-ds as it supposed to. So, now, the directory
server runs fine. The admin-server, however gives the PSET failure
error. On the other hand, if I start the admin server as fedora-ds user:
(e.g., su fedora-ds ./start-admin), then, it starts without any problem!
This is one of those weird cases that has been baffling!
So, at this point I'm not sure the cause of the PSET error.
Probably a permissions problem in admin-serv/config - local.conf,
adm.conf, admpw, and console.conf must be owned by the admin server user
and must be writable. The directory admin-serv/config must be owned by
the admin server user and be writable.
On a side note, I had similar question asked by Thomas King on how
create users outside the NetscapeRoot branch via the "User and Group"
tab in the management Console. I noticed you mentioned selecting
"Change Directory" after going to the user menu. I tried that, but, I
don't seem to have the "Change Directory" option anywhere on the menu.
I'm runing FDS-1.0.4 on RHEL5.
