2.0 Getting Started

To integrate Novell® eDirectory™ with FreeRADIUS, do the following:

  1. Install FreeRADIUS 1.0.2 or later from the OS (SLES 10 or later) installation media. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 and later versions ship eDirectory integrated freeRADIUS server.


    If you are building from sources, provide --with-edir option during configure, in addition to regular options.

  2. Configure the FreeRADIUS server by modifying the install_path/etc/raddb/radiusd.conf file:

    1. Modify the LDAP module in the configuration file.

    2. Enable the LDAP module in the authorization section of the configuration file.

    3. Specify ‘ldap' in the post-authentication section of the configuration file.

  3. Configure eDirectory users for RADIUS authentication using RADIUS iManager plug-in.
