I just installed 2 new ClearOS 5.2 servers. One of them acts as a PDC/File server and the other as an application server. I have the application server setup as a replicate and all info from the pdc server is being replicated correctly. I run into a problem when on the app server I try to add a service to a user (or change any information). I get an error that says "Strong(er) authentication required." Is there a fix for this?

I followed this guide:

    Sorry -- you can't update directory information on the slave/BDC system. We'll need to - of course - change the behavior of the GUI at some point. At this stage, we're still in the process of getting the master/slave PDC/BDC working really really well.

    Same problem here...

    LDAP replication to BDC seems to work fine, but as soon as I try to modify anything on BDC I get "Strong(er) authentication required." warning message.

    Is it still not possible to manage user accounts and groups on BDC? Is there a workoround for this problem?

    Peter,

    I've done work similar to Adam's and do have replication working.

    One thing that I noted: the PDC seems to go unstable about 15 minutes after powering up the BDC. I'm not sure what it is; even the webconfig goes soft. One reboot of the PDC seems to resolve it.

    Of course, i'll just deal with this until more is released for replication Alpha/Beta.

    Thanks!
    Drew

    Thanks Peter,

    I know I'm getting ahead of things. I just like to test things and try to fix them when they don't work.
    LDAP replication is one of the areas that I am really looking forward to.

    Hi Adam,

    On the master node, change the mode setting in /etc/cleardirectory/config:

    mode = master

    You will then see all the app options available to you in the user manager! Again, you are just a wee bit ahead of the curve on this one ;) We really want to go over the master/replicate implementation internally before unleashing it to the ClearFoundation community. This is especially true for the PDC/BDC implementation.

    I don't have a promblem doing the updates from the PDC other than I cant give my user the mailbox or proxy attribute from the PDC because the app is not installed on it. I would like to keep it that way. Would I be able to add the attribute if I copy over the schema files from the APP server?

    Hi Adam,

    We'll be putting together a specific beta program on the master/replicate feature. I would hold off a few weeks until we get that program going :-)


    I followed this guide:
    www.clearfoundation.com/docs/developer/f...replication_settings.


    The developer document that you referenced is a bit old since much of that was implemented in 5.2 (the ldapsetup command will do all the work). That command will work, but it's not fully baked yet.

    I run into a problem when on the app server I try to add a service to a user (or change any information). I get an error that says "Strong(er) authentication required.


    You won't be able to manage users from the replicate system. You have to update information on the master.

    Is it possible that this could be occuring because the PDC server does not have the neccesary schema extensions for the applications installed on the APP server? If so, could I copy over the extentions and include them in the LDAP directory?
