The last message seen on the terminal screen is the following:
Importing LDAP directory information...
The script terminates without completing the initialization.
Bug fixes were made in the posInitAdminserver.sh script and in the adminserver.conf.template to resolve the problem.
Apply the current SLEPOS 11 patches in the channel and do the following to fix this issue:
- Make a copy of the original /usr/sbin/posInitAdminserver.sh script.
- Add -x at the beginning of the script like this:
- Save the script.
- Run the script and enter the default requested data for the initialization.
+ ldapadd -x -c -H ldaps://localhost -D cn=<admin name>,o=<organization name>,c=<country name> -w<admin password> -f /tmp/tmp.<random string>
+ '[' 255 -ne 0 ']'
+ err_exit ' ldapadd -x -c -H ldaps://localhost -D "cn=<admin name>,o=<organization name>,c=<country name>" -w"<admin password>" -f "/tmp/tmp.<random string>"'
+ err ldapadd -x -c -H ldaps://localhost -D '"cn=<admin name>,o=<organization name>,c=<country name>"' -w '"<admin password>"' -f '"/tmp/tmp.<random string>"'
+ case $ERROR in
+ '[' -f '' ']'
If the ldapadd command listed above in the output is manually executed with the -d1 switch for additional ldap debug, the following error message is seen:
TLS: hostname (linux.MyLocation.MyUnit.MyOrg.us) does not match common name in
ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
