Hello,  I could please use your help regarding issues I am seeing with user access authenticating to my new LDAP server.

I am new to LDAP, and am building my first server.


I have created a new user (lou) and client (ldapServer) and am trying to authenticate the user through the client.

I have configured the LDAP server to also be the LDAP test client.


I am seeing the following errors in the /var/log/sssd/sssd_default.log when I run:


getent passwd lou


su - lou

According to the doc for common-errors doc.



I believe I am having an issue with the Default ACLs.


I have been doing much reading and am coming up short.  My questions are:


First: how to delete the current default ACLs using a command line entry, or using a ldapmodify on a .ldif file


Second:  how to add a new ACL  allowing all users access using a command line entry or .ldif file.  Once I get the user lou (and other test users) to connect, I will change the ACL

access rules for restriction.  I need to get it working first.


Also,  is there a step by step beginners guide for the ACL process?  


Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you - Lou
