Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.2 not working with LDAP Fail Over Auth
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2010 19:23:43 GMT
Hi Eric

LDAP Client = apache try to linked with ldap2 if ldap1 fails i submited the
conf in which i use ldap auth for apache

LDAPTrustedMode TLS
LDAPConnectionTimeout 4

<Directory "/var/www/html/test" >

AuthName "Testing Ldap fail over"
AuthType Basic

# The LDAP server(s)
AuthLDAPURL "ldap://,dc=com?uid??"
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthLDAPBindDN "uid=webcon,ou=WebAdmin,dc=mydomain,dc=com"
AuthLDAPBindPassword abxxyz

AuthLDAPGroupAttribute memberUid

Require ldap-group cn=WEBOU,dc=mydomain,dc=com
Order Allow,Deny
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Multiviews
Allow from All


So my intention towards apache only, other ldap clients like ssh etc are
working fine with ldap fail over.

2) Regarding logs, both apahce error and access logs are not shown any
messaaes when try to connect with ldap2, browser page is still in processing
try to connect ldap2 if ldap1 is goes down.

3) Its not an ldap client issue, its bascially apache ldap client issue
which fails to connect with secondary ldap server when primary goest down,
by using above conf.

So please suggest
