Mandriva MDS on Centos 5.3 Not Working

Postby periko » 2009/09/04 01:00:47

Hi people.

I have been setup a PDC with samba+ldap, is working, smbldap-tools working, I can create users, add machines, etc, really cool.

Now I have seen MDS from Mandriva, cool tool to handle my network, I try to setup MDS, but looks like something is not good.

I have follow the instructions from their site, I access the web page, but went I input my username + password my browser wait for ever and never receive any answer.
It suppose that u have input the LDAP username and password from the admin.

I had run the mmc-agent daemon as stand alone to see what is doing, but I see any issue:

/usr/local/sbin/mmc-agent -d
mmc-agent 2.3.2 starting...
Using Python 2.4.3 (#1, Jul 27 2009, 17:57:39)

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/mmc/support/ PotentialZombieWarning: spawnProcess called, but the SIGCHLD handler is not installed. This probably means you have not yet alled, or called You will probably never see this process finish, and it may become a zombie process.
reactor.spawnProcess(shProcess, "/bin/sh", ['/bin/sh','-c',cmd],env=os.environ)
Looks like NSCD is installed on your system. You should not run NSCD on a SAMBA server.
Plugin samba loaded, API version: 5:2:4 build(748)

Does someone here setup MDS in Centos?

Did I miss something?

Centos 5.3 updated
MDS 2.3.2.

Thanks for your time :-)

Mandriva MDS on Centos 5.3 Not Working

Since their installation instructions seem to only address CentOS 4.3 I'd have serious reservations about trying to follow anything so outdated. CentOS forum and site searches turn up only your post so help here may be hard to come by. All I can suggest is the links for FAQ, Mailing Lists, and Support on

Mandriva MDS 2.3.2 working on Centos 5.3.
Maybe the key was to enable SSL, I just cannot confirm right now.
I create, change and delete users confirm.

Just to let u know.

Went I logout from the mds console, my browser goes crazy, it was on a loop, the programmer we have fix this, the file is:


Original File
Line 44 -> header("Location: " . $root . "index.php");
Line 44 -> header("Location: " . $root . "../index.php");
