Centos Client will not connect freeipa LDAP server

Post by dthacker9 » 2020/06/11 20:31:48

Goal: Login from my client vm (rhcsa-02) to the freeipa server (labipa) using the LDAP users I have created in my freeipa server.

When I try to login from the client, I get an error. I can use to the lpapuser1 on the freeipa server:

Code: Select all

[root@rhcsa-02 /]# su - ldapuser1
su: user ldapuser1 does not exist

[root@labipa ~]# su - ldapuser1

I ran ldapsearch on the client to see if it could see the LDAP server. This is that output:

Code: Select all

[root@rhcsa-02 /]# ldapsearch -x -b "uid=ldapuser1 ,ou=ipausers,dc=dthacker,dc=lab"
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <uid=ldapuser1 ,ou=ipausers,dc=dthacker,dc=lab> with scope subtree
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 1
I think this is telling me that client can see the leap server, but can't find the user. How can I further debug this problem?
