Hello People,

Please help me in changing the login page from “Local” to “AD.” How would I make AD login as a default? I have a new version of DekiWiki and I love it. The LDAP authentication worked without a hassle. 

Waiting for the reply.

To configure DekiWiki follow the below steps

  • Download the VMWare Appliance.  
  • Extract the zip file in any location – I chose my Virtual Machines drive (F:), in the "LinuxEtchDekiWiki" sub folder.
  • Make a Double click on the vmx file to have it auto import into the VMWare management console.
  • Rename the logical descriptor – I have changed it as "vmDekiWiki".
  • Start the virtual machine.
  • During the time of booting in the BIOS screen, press F2, and change the auto-key repeat function to longest delay and slowest repeat
  • Now its started and running.  In my case it auto grabbed a DHCP address which is not preferred, but at least its up.

Tuning / Customization

Now we are going to start customization the id, password, etc. Configuration for me consisted of changing the IP, the host name, and adding a user account.

  • Login with the default root user and "password" password on the console
  • Edit /etc/hostname file changing from "deki-hayes" to "vmDekiWiki"
  • Edit /etc/hosts file changing from "deki-hayes" to "vmDekiWiki"
  • Edit /etc/mailname file changing from "deki-hayes" to "vmDekiWiki"
  • Update the /etc/network/interfaces file from this :
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
 
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
 
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp


to this :

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
 
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
 
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.60
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.1.0
        broadcast 192.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.253
        dns-namesers 192.168.1.2
        dns-search example.com


Lastly, edit /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group – and add a new account.  Now you can just use useradd or adduser.  Now make the /home/USER account for the user you create,


Now reboot the application.  It works fine.  For more reference use
