Directory Server Machine: Add a Test User to the Directory Server

To authenticate a Kerberos user to the Directory Server, there must be a directory entry for the user that corresponds to the Kerberos Principal for that user.

In a previous step, a test user was added to the Kerberos database with a Principal of kerberos-test@EXAMPLE.COM. Because of the identity mapping configuration added to the directory, the corresponding directory entry for that user must have a DN of uid=kerberos-test,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com.

Before you can add the user to the directory, you must create the file testuser.ldif with the following contents.

Example 5–5 New testuser.ldif File

dn: uid=kerberos-test,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: add
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
uid: kerberos-test
givenName: Kerberos
sn: Test
cn: Kerberos Test
description: An account for testing Kerberos authentication through GSSAPI

Next, use ldapmodify to add this entry to the server:

$ ldapmodify -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w - -f testuser.ldif
adding new entry uid=kerberos-test,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
