Default Ldap password for authentication


#1

Hi,
I need to set up a new company in Odoo. I have set up a new database and to enable Ldap authentication. Ldap authentication did work for Odoo8 database but I apparently need to manually configure this for the new company.

What would be the password for “cn=XXXXX,cn=dc,cn=computers,dc=AAAAA,dc=BBBBB”?

Is the password the string that can be found in /etc/machine.secret on the local machine? Is the string clear text or a password hash?

Is this also the same password that is entered in the machine account in the LDAP tree?

Thanks
Bengt

Yes, /etc/machine.secret contains the password of the local machine account. It is saved as clear text string.
