Sun Java System Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Configuring the Client Machine

The following example instructions assume that you installed and configured the Solaris host as described in the previous section.

You must configure a PAM client machine to locate the LDAP host with a repository that the client will use to access (and effectively change) the LDAP store. To configure the PAM client, use the Solaris ldapclient command, which stores the client’s configuration information on the local host.

Note –

Be sure to make a back-up copy of the /etc/nsswitch.conf file before you run the ldapclient command. Running ldapclient has several side effects— which includes completely replacing the system’s /etc/nsswitch.conf file with a copy of the content in /etc/nsswitch.ldap.

The following image illustrates an example ldapclient command:
