#Authconfig

Build Status

A Puppet module that installs and configures authconfig on EL distributions.

It can manage LDAP, NIS, Kerberos and SMB/Winbind related authentication specifics. It also handles enable/disable of caching (nscd).

Usage

Simple Usage

include authconfig

This will install the authconfig package if necessary and set ldap, ldapauth and ldaptls to disable by default.

Custom Usage

class { 'authconfig' :
  ldap           => true,
  ldapauth       => true,
  ldaptls        => false,
  ldapserver     => '192.168.42.42',
  ldapbasedn     => 'dc=example,dc=com',
  ldaploadcacert => 'http://www.example.com/certificates/Example_CA.pem'
  sssd           => false,
  sssdauth       => false,
  forcelegacy    => false,
  pamaccess      => false,
  krb5           => true,
  krb5realm      => 'example.com',
  krb5kdc        => ['kdc1.example.com', 'kdc2.example.com'],
  krb5kadmin     => 'kadmin.example.com',
  cache          => true,
  winbind        => false,
  winbindauth    => false,
  smbsecurity    => 'ads',
  smbrealm       => 'example.com',
  smbworkgroup   => 'MYGROUP',
  winbindjoin    => 'user@domain%password',
}

This will install the authconfig package if necessary and set ldap and ldapauth to enable. It will query the LDAP server located at ldapserver address at ldapbasedn. In the mean time it will set ldaptls to disable. The you can simply do the same for NIS.

In general, if the option is of type --enableoption/--disableoption simply set true if you want to enable it, false otherwise.
