Domain users are not able to login from GUI


First we have installed OS with the mentioned iso (OES11-SP2 with
SLES11-SP3 x86_64.iso). After that, we have installed eDirectory and
created some users. (domain users).

In RHEL-6.5 Desktop, domain users are able to login from command prompt
(terminal login). But when we are trying from GUI, users are not able to
login (Authentication Failure).

Pls help us to resolve this out.

Re: Domain users are not able to login from GUI

This is not an eDirectory issue. If the users can login from anywhere,
the eDirectory, and perhaps in your case, Domain Services for Windows
(DSfW), pieces are working properly. What is not working is RHEL's
configuration to also allow remote users to be authenticated when the
interface is the GUI (X windows, probably Gnome) and that's probably just
a PAM misconfiguration. I'd look at /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/pam.d/*
to check that, or check in RHEL-specific forums. To verify this
conclusion, compare what you see in eDirectory via ndstrace with the
commands below:

set dstrace=nodebug
dstrace +time +tags +ldap
dstrace file on
set dstrace=*r
#perform test here
dstrace file off

Use the commands above for both the successful and failing logins. I
suspect on successful attempts, you'll see stuff, and on failing attempts
you'll see nothing, meaning RHEL is not trying to even access eDirectory
because of the PAM misconfiguration.

Good luck.
