I've got openLDAP running and installed the pam and nss libraries so it would also control the Linux passwords. I'm trying to sign onto my server using ssh - but once I enter my username and password, I get
WARNING: Your password has expired. You must change your password now and login again! Enter login(LDAP) password:
Now being a bad security person, I always use the exact same username / password combination and they don't work.
If a use either nothing (just hit Enter) or if I put in the standard password I get
passwd: Authentication information cannot be recovered passwd: password unchanged Connection to ubuntu closed.
If I enter in some nonsensical string I get
LDAP Password incorrect: try again Enter login(LDAP) password:
However, that is the only root level user on the machine and I have TONS of stuff on it. How do I fix? Is this an openLDAP issue or something else?
