authtool should support proper LDAP checking

Bug #107693 reported by Stephan Buys
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Network Authentication Configuration

Bug Description

The "LDAP Authentication" method should have a button: fetch DN, that does a:

ldapsearch -h HOSTNAME -x -b '' -s base '(objectclass=*)' namingContexts

This will return the possible naming contexts

A further search can then be done to determine if anonymous queries of the directory is possible (may affect logons)

Lastly a sanity check can be done to see if the necessary attributes for nss_ldap and pam_ldap are available.

This contains code (requires python-ldap) to automatically detect the base_dn
