Install Exceed Connection Server on Solaris

Installation Requirements

The software is easy to install but a bit tricky to configure. Initially it needs a local account which can logon to the solaris box remotely. After a connection is made between the Exceed Connection Server and the Exceed Server Manager (already installed on terminalsrv01) the setup can be changed to authenticate through LDAP.

A local user is created called “exceed”, password is listed in the KeePass database. When the installation is ready the account is blocked from logging in:

sjoerd@solarisbox02:sudo useradd -d /opt/eod -m -c "Exceed Authentication User" exceed
sjoerd@solarisbox02:/opt$ sudo passwd exceed
New Password:
Re-enter new Password:
passwd: password successfully changed for exceed

Blocking (l) and unblocking (u) the account works like this:

sjoerd@solarisbox02:~$ sudo passwd -l exceed
passwd: password information changed for exceed
sjoerd@solarisbox02:~$ sudo passwd -u exceed
passwd: password information changed for exceed

An LDAP administrative account is created called ldapexceed, password is listed in the KeePass database. This account is always blocked from logging through LDAP in the sshd_config file:

# Disallow application-user to use ssh
DenyUsers locuser* exceed ldapexceed
Note: restart ssh afterwards: svcadm restart ssh

Install Software

After downloading run the installation binary and follow the wizard:

root@solarisbox02:/opt/eod# ./ecs-13.8.1-solaris-x64.bin
Exceed Connection Server 13.8 Self-Extracting Installer

Enter directory to install Exceed Connection Server to
[/opt/eod/Exceed_Connection_Server_13.8_64]: /opt/eod
Installing to "/opt/eod"

Start script: </code> sjoerd@solarisbox02:~$ ls -l /etc/init.d/otecs* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 14511 Jul 19 14:28 /etc/init.d/otecs_13.8 </code>

Note that more installations will create new startscripts like /etc/init.d/otecs_13.8_0.

Running software:

root@solarisbox02:/tmp# ps -ef | grep eod
    root  4677  2801   0 14:40:24 pts/10      0:00 grep eod
    root  4653     1   0 14:39:39 ?           0:00 /opt/eod/bin/sys/esessionmgr /opt/eod

Now you can login on the Exceed Server Manager (on terminalsrv01) with the local exceed user.

LDAP Configuration

  1. Connect to the server from the server manager console, login
  2. On the NODE tree, expand it and select the Server Node (the Unix server you are connected to)
  3. On the NODE menu choose Node Settings
  4. Click on the Libraries button
  5. You must specify the path to the LDAP libraries on the Unix box (/usr/lib)
  6. Click okay, the Click okay.
  7. Click on the Cluster menu and choose, RESTART CLUSTER
  8. You will be prompted to connect / login again
  9. From the Cluster Menu, choose Settings
  10. In the Authentication Section, choose LDAP and then click Settings.
    1. User DN: cn=“Directory Manager”
    2. Password can be found in KeePass
    3. Base DN: ou=people,dc=prd,dc=domain
    4. User Base DN: KEEP EMPTY or authentication will FAIL (bug?!? - in debug mode LDAP errors 34 and 48 will appear)
  11. Click the Test button, once successfully configured
  12. Click on the SELECT button to select an LDAP based EOD Connection Server Administrator (ldapexceed)
  13. Disconnect from the Server from Server Manager
  14. Reconnect and login as LDAP user from then on, other LDAP user will also be able to connect.

If something goes wrong or fails with the LDAP configuration you can revert back to the local user login by editing the cluster.cfg file:

sjoerd@solarisbox02:/opt/eod/conf/admin$ sudo vi cluster.cfg

[CLUSTER]
EoDCMPassword=hbmppkVHQh0UmB9+wVoC/w==
EoDCMSSL=0
EoDCMLog=html
EoDCMDefXconfig=Passive.cfg
EoDCMAuth=ldap

Change the EoDCMAuth setting to “native”.

Additional Information

Start EOD in debug Mode

In order to run the EOD server in Debug Mode we need to do the following
1.	EDIT the NODE.CFG file /conf/admin added the following section
[UNDOC]
undocdebugmask=0xffffff
2.	Save the file
3.	Stop the EOD Server with
/bin/otecs stop
4.	Restart the EOD Server with
/bin/otecs start -v
EOD server will start in Verbose debug mode, it will start to scroll up the display with log file output. When you attempt to login from the EOD Server Manager we should be able to see some information in there.
