3.) if you use PAM (as you probably do with LDAP authentication), you
need to add one "allow user:password" to monit configuration file. The
monit CLI reads the configuration file and gets credentials which are
used to connect to daemon from it (the daemon and CLI share the same
configuration). The configuration file is protected by 0600 mode so only
owner can read it (monit enforces the mode to protect the passwords and
if it doesn't match, it refuses to start).

Adding a "allow user:password" to the config is exactly what i did; however, it violates the policy of managing all authentication challenges via LDAP (even if it is highly local). It does appear to be the only solution though.

Thanks for the quick reply in any case !
