Overview

This module installs and configured nslcd to get pam/nss data from ldap.

Module Description

This module allows you to install and configure the nslcd daemon (and its dependencies), to provide ldap support for PAM and NSS.

Setup

What nslcd affects

  • nslcd package and service
  • /etc/nslcd.conf

Usage

Simply include/contain/required/declare the nslcd class. It includes a few sane defaults, so it should work out of the box. However, we recommend that you declare the class and override a few parameters:

class { 'nslcd':
  ldap_uris => ['ldap://ldap.mycompany.com'],
  ldap_ssl  => 'on',
}

Reference

Limitations

The module has been tested with Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04, Debian 6 and 7, and Puppet 3.7. It should work Puppet 3.x. For additional OS support, you should contribute it back upstream!

The module doesn't support setting the rootbinddn and rootbindpw attributes, but it can be easily added.
