Authentication in WinDoze
Well, I guess I
shouldn't be shocked that all the examples and such are done with a UNIX shell.
While that may be what we wind up running OpenLDAP on in the end (prototype mode
at the moment), the prototype box I have is a Win2K based machine.
I've got slapd
running and am trying to get a test set built up. Unfortunately, I can't managed
to get past the simplest of things - authentication. The service appears to be
running just fine, but I'm having problem getting ldap_search to authenticate
in. Instead, I run a statement such as (I've tried some other authentication
-b '' -s base '(objectclass=*)' namingContexts
And get back:
ldap_search: Invalid DN syntax
ldap_search: additional info: invalid
relevant section (all else is the defaults) of slapd.conf looks something
Division of NetIQ,c=US"
# Cleartext passwords, especially for the rootdn,
# be avoid. See slappasswd(8) and slapd.conf(5) for
# Use of strong authentication
# The database directory MUST exist
prior to running slapd AND
# should only be accessible by the slapd/tools.
Mode 700 recommended.
Indices to maintain
index objectClass eq
I must admit that
there are a few other problems I'm expecting to have, but this is the one that
is perplexing me at the moment. I've never been the worlds greatest UNIX jockey,
but I have not (until now) considered myself completely clueless here. Any help
on making the authentication translation would be greatly
