Sharing same userdatabase between several Nethserver installations (Ldap?)


(Kristian Malvander) #1

I just wondering if there is an easy way to hook up 3 - 4 Nethserver installations and reuse the same userdatabase between the server?

Example:

User --> Nethserver GW --> Owncloud
|
–> Mail server
|
–> Web server / Intranet

AFAIK, the answer is no.
But I’d like to have this feature. Maybe @davidep knows more.

Yeah it’s not possible by now, but I’d like to make it possible in the future, by removing the AccountsDB layer: the only authoritative source of system accounts should be the getent library call.

We could then connect any account backend, supporting nss or sssd, and also take advantage of LDAP replication features…

To make this possible all services depending on AccountDB must be fixed!

Let’s write down a list of those services
