lcmaps_localaccount.mod [-gridmapfile|-GRIDMAPFILE|-gridmap|-GRIDMAP <location gridmapfile>]


This plugin is an Acquisition Plugin and will provide the LCMAPS system with Local Account credential information. To do this it needs to look up the Distinghuished Name (DN) from a user's certificate in the gridmapfile. If this DN is found in the gridmapfile the plugin knows the mapped local (system) account username. By knowing the username of the local account the plugin can gather additional information about this account. The plugin will resolve the UID, GID and all the secondary GIDs. When this has been done and there weren't any problems detected, the plugin will add this information to a datastructure in the Plugin Manager. The plugin will finish its run with a LCMAPS_MOD_SUCCESS. This result will be reported to the Plugin Manager which started this plugin and it will forward this result to the Evaluation Manager, which will take appropriate actions for the next plugin to run. Normally this plugin would be followed by an Enforcement plugin that can apply these gathered credentials in a way that is appropriate to a system administration's needs.
