Kanaka Plug-in not working Lion

Hi all,

We just deployed Kanaka in a test environment preparing to go production. I can login fine using the Client, but can not login utilizing the plugin. We installed on OES2 SP3. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Being in the K-12 workspace, having the plugin work for student logins would be ideal. I have not yet tested on a Snow Leopard machine, but we are hoping to move the district to Lion ASAP. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Do you have proxy settings on the client. If so make sure you have an
exclusion for the servers not to be proxied. That is what I ran into. Hope
it is the same for you.

When you say that it doesn't work, what have you tried? How is your Kanaka policy configured? Network Accounts? Mobility enabled? Have ensured that you are trying to login with an eDirectory account that doesn't already exist as a local user on the Mac?

Cheers,
Matt

Re: Kanaka Plug-in not working Lion

Well we figured out that if we took a Lion machine right out of the box it works fine, for whatever reason, if the box has been in use, the plugin will not work but the client will. On a brand new machine, setting up only an admin account and then installing the plugin, the plugin works fine. Not sure what that is about. Saw weird issues on the login attempts on the server as only get info attempts as opposed to authentication requests when it failed. At any rate now working on new issues.

It shouldn't matter how long the machine has been in use. On these machines that have been in use, do you already have local accounts that match usernames in eDirectory? If so, that is your problem. Based on your description of the problem, I would guess that is what is going on.

Keep in mind, the OS X authentication model checks its local authentication authority first! Once it finds an account in it by the one you entered in loginwindow, it will only attempt to authenticate it locally. At this point, get user info requests are superfluous.

Cheers,
Matt
