Subject [users@httpd] Novell and mod_ldap - User is not unique (search found two or more matches)
Date Thu, 21 Dec 2006 15:33:17 GMT
Hi dears

My Name is Fábio Coelho, I'am a brazilian Linux admin.

I'm trying to configure Apache to authenticate anonymously against
Novell Ldap, and I did a ldapsearch from the console, with the filter:


that returns the following text:

administrativo:/opt/personalizados # ldapsearch -h -x
-b o=jfsc -s sub '(&(cn=qlx)(objectClass=Person))' objectClass
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <o=jfsc> with scope subtree
# filter: (&(cn=qlx)(objectClass=Person))
# requesting: objectClass

dn: cn=QLX,ou=NINF,ou=FLP,o=JFSC
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: Person
objectClass: ndsLoginProperties
objectClass: Top
objectClass: qmailUser

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1

One entrie, but for apache are two, using the same filter:

    <Directory "/srv/www/newdesenv/htdocs/">
        AuthName "Autenticacao LDAP"
        AuthType Basic
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthLDAPRemoteUserIsDN on
        AuthLDAPURL   ldap://  \
        Require valid-user
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

result in the error

[Mon Dec 18 12:52:54 2006] [warn] [client] [7194] auth_ldap
authenticate: user qlx authentication failed; URI /info.php [User is not
unique (search found two or more matches)][No such object]

It is a bug or a characteristic? How can i circunvent this?

Thank you for the atention
