The question of whether VMware Server running on Linux supports LDAP authentication, arose this afternoon. It turns out it is very simple, since the VMware authentication modules use PAM, the Pluggable Authentication Modules. Setup is a cinch, if you’ve fiddled with PAM before, and it is used by the VMware console to grant access to the server. VMware Console Nice.
