Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 Service Pack 1
Novell Linux User Management (LUM)
User name to authenticate to SLED workstations are case-sensitive.
The command "id" return the following output:
HOSTNAME: id admin
id: admin: No such user
HOSTNAME: id Admin
uid=601(Admin) gid=601(LinuxUsers) groups=601(LinuxUsers)
Adding the parameter case-sensitive=no to "/etc/nam.conf" file does not change the system behaviour.
Novell Linux User management version coming with SLED10 SP1 is case-sensitive by default and does not include the functionality to use the parameter "case-sensiitive=yes/no" in the "/etc/nam.conf" file.
If the command "man nam.conf" is issued, you can notice that"case-sensitive" is not listed as a valid parameter.
The option to turn on/off case-sensitive user names is available starting from novell-lum-18.104.22.168-2.4 that is scheduled to be delivered with SLED10 Support Pack 2.
