help - Host Access Based on Group Membership
On RedHat Linux I did this by adding an entry to /etc/security/access.conf to allow certain groups to login.
Hereâ€™s what mine looks like:
# grep -v ^# /etc/security/access.conf
+ : safull sagroup2 : ALL
- : saldap : ALL
Safull is the group that is allowed access to that server, I also put every LDAP users into saldap so by default no ldap account has access to this server (unless
in safull or sagroup2).
Youâ€™ll need to add a line something like this to system-auth (or module specific file if youâ€™re using it):
accountÂ*Â*Â*Â* requiredÂ*Â*Â*Â*Â* pam_access.so

Subject: [389-users] help - Host Access Based on Group Membership
I would like to control host access via groups/role? Has anyone done this? If so, can you give me some pointers in the correct direction?Â*
I've done my own research, but found that I need to allow more than one group to log into a system. So, pam_groupdn is out of the question. The other way of doing it would be to use SSH, but this involves a lot of client configuration.
The 3rd option would be to use a netgroup style in 389.Â*
