I'm starting the process of setting up LDAP, and would like to use
the password backend. However, I'm finding that with the slapd.conf
specifying a password backend, as of:
in the slapd.conf file, the slapd process won't start. If I remove
the password and use the default lbdm backend instead, the process
starts just fine.
I read that the default for the LDAP install includes support for all
three backends; shell, ldbm, and passwd. Is this correct? As I
didn't specify anything one way or the other during the configuration.
Could it be that something is wrong with the passwd file itself? We
are using shadow passwords on a Linux machine (Mandrake), but other
than that, it seems like a normal /etc/passwd file.
If anyone has any ideas as to how to get this passwd backend working
that would be great!
Also, I haven't learned the in's and out's of setting up a ldbm
database yet, is there any examples of a basic setup out there,
including a persons name, phone# and email? The man pages and Quick
Start Guide aren't so clear.
