Hello everyone,

I have a ldap server running on another distro and I use it for a lot of different things (such as users, passwords, and hosts) and it all works fine on that distro. I'm also trying to get all of this to work in FC5 and so far I have gotten users and passwords to work but the hosts is giving me problems. If I type getent hosts I see the complete list of hosts as it should be but if I try to ping one of the hosts it just hangs. If I try to ping the ip address everything works fine. I should also note that I can't ping domain's either (such as again it just hangs but if I use a browser I can browse to them. On another note, when I type getent hosts in the ldap console i can see the query but when I try to ping a single domain I see nothing in the ldap console, not even an attempt.

you need to confirm padl tools setup...

what's output of ???

grep host /etc/nsswitch

grep host /etc/ldap.conf


padl tools setup?

the hosts line from my ldap config
nss_base_hosts  ou=Hosts,dc=example,dc=org
wouldn't it make sense to make the above line something that could
possibly be meaningful from ldap?

how about ldapsearch?  can you get hosts by querying via ldapsearch?

if so, the answer to what you need in the line above should be obvious.

from nsswitch.conf
#hosts:     db files nisplus nis dns
hosts:      files dns ldap

Note: ldap was before dns but by moving it back i was able to ping But I still can't ping hosts in the hosts list.
probably should be running local dns for this but ldap.conf above is the
reason why it's not working for you.


Actually I was thinking about putting up a DNS server, I'm just not excited about having another service to run and maintain but. The Hosts line is actually not what i put i just didn't want to post my domain name here however you could probably tell by my email. But the dn is correct i a sure you.
