    We have installed the enterprise version on a Linux computer (Ubuntu server 14.04 with KDE desktop). We use an LDAP server for user authentication. As soon as user log into the server they are added to  local groups ( in our case “fuse” and vgluser) using “*;*;*;Al0000-2400;fuse,vglusers” in “/etc/security/group.conf“. This works perfectly for ssh logins and also for local logins, but not for users logging into the system by spawning a NoMachine virtual desktop (happens for both KDE or console only). The local groups are ignored. If I want to make sure that LDAP users are assigned to local groups in the NoMachine session,  I must explicitly add them to  “/etc/group” which is a rather bad solution.

    Did anyone experienced a similar problem? Any ideas?

    Any help is highly appreciated.


    Server:   NoMachine Enterprise Server Subscription – Version 4.2.27 on Ubuntu 14.04

    Client: Ubuntu 14.04, Windows 7. Both with most recent Free version of NoMachine client

    Problem occurs with both “KDE desktop” and “console only” virtual display


    Hello henrik,

    Unfortunately, assigning LDAP users to local groups, using pam_group module is currently not supported.
    We created TR: and are going to deal with this issue.

    Thanks for reporting.
