Re: Notification from LDAP Server

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the reply.

If got your point, but how will i know which user attributes got changed ? can the openldap server send a notification ? and how can i receive a notification to nslcd ? if yes how can i achieve that ?

I know which user attributes got changed,i can write a script to invalidate only those user's sessions.

Script it out so that any sessions of said user are killed. (What we had to do)
Then the user re-establishes the session with new rights.

Hi All,

I was a beginner working on a small embedded System which uses nslcd(pam_ldap) as the client for authentication.
When ever the pam_ldap return a success, i have the necessary code to establish a session(persisted) for the specific ldap user.

But the problem which i was facing was :
When ever there is a change in ldap users attributes like password/group in the server, i need a way to obtain a signal from the ldap server to nslcd so that i can invalidate the existing sessions of the respective user whose attributes are changed.

How can we achieve this ? Can anyone help me to point some example/tutorials?
