LDAP Schema Design
Ok i got a bit familiar with LDAP, and now I am designing my
schema. Because the needs are unique, the schema needs to be unique, and
here is my current plan.
To have 4 Objects in this schema
RootObject - This object would be the parent of all the other objects.
ContinentObject - This object has the ContinentName, and should be a child
of the RootObject (Probably even inherit the RootObject) then ?
CountryObject - This will have the certain countries, and the continent
they are connected to (Again inherincy, but here RootObject isn't
UserObject - This will have the records of each user. The attributes here
will be shown below. Here are all the attributes of each table.
RootObject - I guess just give it something simple for identification. I
dont know how the standard approach is.
ContinentObject - This will have a case insensitive string of the
Continent, and if needed it's parent, which is the simple string given for
the root identification.
CountryObject should have a Continent Name (Case insensitive), and the
Country Name (Also case insensitive). I figure the continent name would
be inherited, or what ever.
UserObject - this would be the big object. It's attributes are:
Username - Case Insensitive String, also the unique (or cn i guess)
State - Case insensitive string
City - Case insensitive string
Zipcode - This would be a case insensitive string
Relevence - An integer, that is from 0->100, etc.
Could somebody please advice, or help with creating this. I am really
scared with touching any of the *.oc.conf, *.at.conf files as I'm unsure
of what exactly to touch there.
Thanks again in advance.
