Use Existing LDAP Credentials For Single Sign-On

We deploy the real environment, you take the scenario-based labs on us. Hands-on, from anywhere, at any time.

Time required: 2 Hours


Use an existing OpenLDAP server to provide single sign on access to a Red Hat Enterprise server.


Use Open LDAP and autofs to create a single sign on-solution. When completed, you can log in to your Linux server using SSO from the OpenLDAP server. Upon logging in using your SSO the user's home directory is also automatically added to the Linux system.


You have been tasked with creating a single sign-on solution using an existing LDAP server that you will have to identify.

As a result, you will need to configure AutoFS using SSO in order to mount a user's home directory once they sign on. Once completed, verify the user's home directory is mounted and you can sign on with the appropriate credentials.
