I've configured NetApp with LDAP as I found in the TR-3464. I can login into the NetApp through LDAP correctly. The problem starts when a user with the SHA password hash try to login; he doesn't. Only can login if the password is stored with CRYPT hash.
Is possible to login with another password hashes? Are there any netapp configuration I forgot?
I never checked into the different hashes, but I can tell you that I encountered the same problem, and my directory uses SSHA1 as the password hash. While not optimal, I worked around it by using ssh keys for each user stored in ldap. In a nutshell the ssh key is the authentication and ldap is used for authorization.
It would be awesome is someone from netapp could help clarify this.
Would love to see an update that supports SSHA, since this has been a defacto hashing standard in a few directories for some time.
What is super important that whatever administrative username you are using needs to have the ability to read the password hash attribute. You can easily test to see if you have the permissions to the password attribute with getXXbyYY.
