I recently initdb'd with pwfile to create a new instance. The command is below.
As the postgres user on the local server.
/usr/local/pgsql.v835/bin/initdb --pwfile=/home/postgres/pgp -D /data/Linux.pgsql/serray5432 -E UTF8
nromally use PAM as my METHOD in my hba files to allow ldap users and it works fine. Then again, I
normally don't initialize with --pwfile(wish I wouldn't have).
--pwfile seems to have disabled my ability to use LDAP. I also noticed
the postgres user shows a MD5 hash in it's properties, which indicates it's using MD5(I would expect that since I initialized it with a password. I don't remember -W having that affect though.
Normally, when I add ldap users(new to the instance), I add a new login
via pgadmin with out a password. That works fine, but not
Is it a known bug that initializing the db with --pwfile can cause pam
not to allow ldap communications or is that by design ? Is there
someway I can get ldap functioning again through PAM to get out of this mess?
re-initializing the db with out the --pwfile option my best bet? The only thing I
can think of is to specifically use ldap in the hba file instead of pam
and see if that works. I can get my new users to work by just adding
the password, but then I'm not using LDAP, which is what I want.
It is configured --with PAM
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pgsql.v835 --with-includes=/usr/local/openssl-fips-1.2/include:/usr/local/include --with-libraries=/usr/local/openssl-fips-1.2/lib:/usr/local/lib --with-pam --with-openssl --with-pgport=5489 --with-perl
Thanks for any insight,
