    • Survey for WiMAX deployment

  • Routing check via Virtual Interaces
    • Interface is set up, but nagios need to be configured to perform pings over it.
  • LDAP Authentication
    • To Migrate or not to migrate, that is the question
[15:37] crwilliams: right - Leth seems to have managed to get LDAP authentication on sown-dev working nicely now
[15:38] crwilliams: the question now is do we update our LDAP entries to reference our old uids
[15:38] crwilliams: or do we update our uids to match our ldap ones?
      • Ok for login and sudo on Dev.
      • For other servers we would require fine granularity controls for them. Groups per-server rather than per permissions level.
      • Auth should definitely be a manual change, not LDAP based.
    • Config Check - Does anyone have more 'pam' experience and can check over /etc/pam.d/common-auth on dev?
      • No-one at meeting, try next week.
    • Any other services ought to use LDAP?
