Let me tell you the dilemma I just faced and resolved.
I have a bugzilla installation that is configured to use LDAP for authentication. It is configured to fall back to DB authentication if LDAP isn’t available.
I have both a local user and a domain user that are admins just to resolve this situation where I can’t login as a domain user. I can login as the local user and make the change I need.
First, let me tell you that this is a test/educational server for learning so I “fiddle” with it. Its not in production.
Well, my password changed, as commonly happens every 90 days, and I went to update the password using the local account.
No matter what I tried, I couldn’t login with the local account. My password has changed a few times and this had never been a problem.
So this is my dillemma. I can’t login to get to the screen to update my password.
Well, I learned a few things due to this problem and I plan to post on them:
- In Bugzilla, how can I change the password used for LDAP integration if I can’t login?
- Why Bugzilla fails to authenticate a local user when LDAP integration is failing?
I plan to make a post on both and I will link to them here when they are done.
