LDAP legacy issue

Post by jalirious » 2020/01/02 11:36:48


I'm looking to configure a new centos 8 box to our ancient ldap (to which I lack access).

With centos 7 I used:
authconfig --enableforcelegacy --enableshadow --enablemd5 --enableldap --enableldapauth --disableldaptls --ldapserver= --ldapbasedn="dc=phldap,dc=ph.man.ac.uk" --enablemkhomedir --disablesssd --disablesssdauth --enableforcelegacy --enableshadow --enablemd5 --enableldap --enableldapauth --disableldaptls --ldapserver= --ldapbasedn="dc=phldap,dc=ph.man.ac.uk" --enablemkhomedir --disablesssd --disablesssdauth --update

With centos 8 I find:
Warning: These options are not supported anymore and have no effect:

It seems authconfig is just a shell for authselect now.

The home directories are mounted, but the user accounts are not recognised. Would anyone know a way (downgrade?) to recover the unsupported options?
