Symptoms

nslcd comes as a dependency package for the nss-pam-ldapd and nslcd.conf file contains the configuration information for running nslcd. tmsh does not support modification of nslcd.conf to include some options.

Impact

You are unable to modify nslcd configuration for some options. This prevents the ability to use certain ldap-based remote authentication techniques.

Conditions

This would be encountered only if you wanted to do modify the nslcd configurations

Workaround

Modify nslcd.conf file to include configuration changes manually and restart the nslcd daemon with systemctl restart nslcd

Fix Information

None
