Active directory integration - password incorrect

Post by user2016 » 2017/01/23 04:00:18

[user@server ~]# id username
uid=100001(username) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),10000(sudo)

but when I try su username it says password incorrect
[user@server ~]# su username
su: incorrect password


Code: Select all

Jan 23 05:52:52 Server001 su: pam_unix(su:auth): authentication failure; logname=shell_username uid=12 euid=0 tty=pts/0 ruser=shell_username rhost= user=my_username
Jan 23 05:52:52 Server001 su: pam_krb5[16895]: authentication fails for 'my_username' (
I checked wireshark and for some reason AD resets the connection after entering the password, I don't see it the password being sent to the AD, I think it resets before accepting/checking password or something like that.

Its like password is being checked locally
It had to be something to do with ldap.conf because AD used to reset connection whenever I tried "id username" but after modifying ldap.conf "id username" works. Any idea what could be wrong in the ldap.conf?
