After spending a long weekend, configuring Fedora-DS to have central
autentication + Central home dirs, I now have two issues which I would like
to know if anyone can help me with.
1) Currently when adding a new user, I have to manually goto advanced
options and add a value called posixgroup to the object class, this is so
that groupID have a name and you dont see the error GroupID name not found
when logging onto a box. Is there anyway to update the default user
template, so that, when you enable posixaccount, posixgroup objectclass is
automatically added? thus removing the manual process?
This is in the FDS console you are talking about right? This would be nice
to have, but I guess unless you can change the java code, its still less
flexible in this way. Often people will use a different front end such as
ldapadmin, while the FDS console is preferred for controlling replication,
2) Is there anyway to get the directory server generate UNIQUE UID/GID
based on last uid created. Ideally I would like the range to start
and finish at 8000. The automatic procedure would just use the next
available uid/gid in the list, again removing the need for the user to check
and make sure the id is unique.
It looks like most front ends favour choosing a random one, then require you
to set it manually to what you want. This is to avoid possible conflicts
without having to build in a way to check for this, I agree it should be an
available option though.
any help with either of these issues would be much appreciated.
