Re: Fwd: Re: Administration tools
Perharps I can help, I know François Barillon, i can try to mail him to have more informations about the problem...
But as far as I know Edubuntu does not use LDAP, If i'm correct, then this error message is normal, because no ldap database can be found on the system...

sorry for the typo it should not read passoword it should read password.
I corrected this already for CipUX 3.2.10. So it should be pretty clear
now what that means, ok?
You can browse EVERY standard Skolelinux LDAP without password. You
didn't know? Oh! (not all attributes of course but there was no "all" in
the sentence, right?
Here comes the SHELL code behind that message:
/usr/bin/ldapsearch -x -p 389 -h localhost -b
'uid=root,ou=People,dc=skole,dc=skolelinux,dc=no' -LLL uid uid=root";
So LDAP might not be there or no default structure in it or ACL Problem.
Put the command line on you personal Skoelinux installation and see that
you can browse your LDAP (in limits) without password. Please confirm
that it works!
Holger, you might also have a direct look in the source code next time.
It is available under Alioth:
If you can improve the script let it me know, or do it directly on
Alioth. I would like to have more (or the most?) people on bord, who are
sensible for security issues. Feel free to join the CipUX team as
security advisor/ proofreader.
