After the summer break I resumed my MOSSing, and I finally have it all: now just the accounts are missing.
My problem is I don't have the knowledge to find a way to do this myself, and the documentation lacks of comprehensible (for me) information.
I both refer to the short version on the wiki, where the issue is I don't know what to put as a hash, and I don't see any reference to the final password, and I also refer to the long version on the foundry, where I understand I need a SHA-1 hash, but the problem is the same: I don't know how to create one, nor how I put the final password, the one I write into the client.
Also, I understand there is a "compute_auth_hash" program. The problem is, however, that it doesn't get compiled by default, and I don't know of a configure flag to compile just that bit.
More: if I type a simple gcc (or g++) compute_auth_hash.c, here's what I get:
Code: Select all
[moss@myserver support]$ gcc compute_auth_hash.c /tmp/cc2oBUmS.o: In function `main': compute_auth_hash.c:(.text+0x1de): undefined reference to `SHA' collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
If you happen to have a copy of the compute_auth_hash program and you feel lazy and don't want to explain such basic stuff, just send me a link for that. It will be much appreciated anyway.
Quick recap, for lazy people, in a Yahoo! Answers style:
- How do I create a new user for my MOSS shard, along with his password?
- Do I need to use the SHA-1 encryption?
- Is there a flag to compile and make just the compute_auth_hash software?
For the fourth time, thanks again for the help you're giving me: I'm really learing some precious stuff doing MOSS work!
