AIX LDAP /etc/passwd netgroups

Has anyone successfully used an openldap server with AIX?

I can get a user to authenticate, and I can get the user and group maps to work, 
but I can't get netgroups to work.

In particular, no matter what I put in /etc/passwd, I can't get AIX to even 
query the LDAP server for netgroups.

I _can_ get netgroup data using getnetgrent().

Hi Rick, I have been trying to build openldap under AIX 5.2 with little 
success. What version of openldap are you using and which aix?

Thanks

Sorry.  Can't be of much help here.  We're running The Written Word version of 
openldap 2.1.27 under Solaris as our server.

You might try the openldap RPM in the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications at 
http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/aix/products/aixos/linux/.  They have 2.0.21.  They 
are rather disappointingly behind on just about everything, but what they have 
installs and works well.  At worst, you can get gcc and build openldap with it.

We're trying to do a single-signon solution for AIX 5.2, Solaris 9, and Linux. 
This should not be rocket science.  With Linux, it's not.  With Solaris and AIX, 
it is.

Tried it and it doesn't work! Also, building various releases all seem 
to fail. Thanks anyway.

Netgroups on Aix 5.2 ldap client
Hello, I am trying to get netgroups to work on Aix 5.2 configured as a LDAP client. Authentication works well but netgroups don't. The server is Openldap 2.2.27 on Linux. On the server log, there is no query about netgroups from this client when a netgroup is added to /etc/passwd files. On Aix 5.3, authentication and netgroups work well. Does AIX 5.2 ldap client supports netgroup (with nisSchema) ? If so, does anyone managed to get it to work ? Thanks for any help, Fija My undestanding netgroups is supported only from AIX 5.3 onwards. -Jagan Ok, I am going to give a try to NSS_LDAP from padl. Thanks, Fija ...

Moving/Migrating /etc files from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.3.0
We are migrating our administrative system from an F50 running AIX 4.3.3 to a p5-550 running AIX 5.3.0. When comparing the base 'passwd', 'group', etc., I've noticed that the AIX 5.3.0 base files for 'passwd', 'group', etc. files have ids which are assigned to different users than the ids on the 4.3.3 machine. What is the proper method to 'migrate' the 'passwd', 'group', etc. from 4.3.3 to 5.3.0? For example: Should I leave the ids alone on the 5.3 'passwd', 'group', etc, and somehow assign new ids to the conflicting ids? Is there an better method to combine the 4.3.3 files with the 5.3.0 files? Any other methods available?

netgroup support AIX 5.2 ldap client
Hi, While testing a AIX 5.2 ML8 ldap client I have a problem configuring netgroup support with ldap. I followed the guidelines in the sg247165 ldap guide "Integrating AIX in heterogeneous ldap environments" that said that netgroup support was backported to 5.2 ML4 and beyond. I can authenticate AIX users against ldap (rfc2307) ok. All ldap users can get access to the aix client. When I want to restrict access via setting the +@netgroupname line in /etc/passwd and configuring the system for nis_ldap compat mode, the line in /etc/passwd seems to be ignored. A # lsldap -a netgroup netgroupname succesfully returns the netgroupname and members from ldap. When authenticating a user I can see no ldap calls searching for the netgroup. The ldap client is 5.2 with latest fixpack 5 that updated some libraries and files but not the secldapclntd. lslpp still shows ldap.client.rte at level 5.2.0.0 Am I missing something? gertk wrote: > Hi, > > While testing a AIX 5.2 ML8 ldap client > I have a problem configuring netgroup support with ldap. > I followed the guidelines in the sg247165 ldap guide "Integrating AIX in > heterogeneous ldap environments" that said that netgroup support was > backported to 5.2 ML4 and beyond. > I can authenticate AIX users against ldap (rfc2307) ok.

putenv for AIX and ifdef for AIX
I have read several posts about putenv is not Standard C. But I'm wondering if anyone knows if it is available in AIX. All of our other platforms (linux (32 and 64 bit), sgi, hpux, x86, darwin (intel and mac), interix and sun) behave properly for our application. We found that if we run this command prior to running the application, it works correctly: set LDR_CNTRL=MAXDATA=0x80000000;export LDR_CNTRL Our problem is that we start a parent process that spawns the child application. If we set the LDR_CNTRL=MAXDATA prior to starting the parent process, other child applications are failing. Our initial solution is to have wrap around child application that sets the environmental variable and then spawns an additional child. This environmental variable would only be set if the the operating system is AIX. Second question, does anyone know the correct #ifdef statement to check for AIX, is it: #ifdef __AIX__ I'm a very very green C programmer!

Unix AIX

My experience is if they don't go away from properly formatted ipcs / ipcrm commands, it's because they're tied to processes which are hung waiting on kernel threads (and basically, defunct). In which case you need to kill the owning process (which is already dead, and which probably won't respond to a kill -9 since it's stuck in a kernel thread) or reboot the box. SAP is the worst offender in this regard IME. It's the only app I've ever known people have to constantly clear down shared memory / semaphores for when it doesn't shut down cleanly. -- Tony Evans Saving trees and wasting electrons since 1993 blog...
