Are my ldapadd and ldapsearch accessing the DB ?
this is one more LDAP newbie trying to get a directory service working. I
started with installing a Berkeley Sleepycat (ldbm) database and later
installed the latest version of the openldap server.
As far as I can gather, I have got the ldap server running on our research
machine listening to port 3089 (with command "./slapd "ldap://:3089")
I then continued with the "Add initial entries to your directory" step in
the openldap quickstart guide. The ldif file is as follow:
Issued the command:
./ldapadd -h agastya.ics.uci.edu -p 3089 -x -D
"cn=Manager,o=dsm.ics.uci.edu,c=US" -W -f composeldif.ldif
and got the results:
Enter LDAP Password:
adding new entry "o=dsm.ics.uci.edu,c=US"
ldif_record() = 10
At this moment, I'm not sure from the message if the add has gone
right. Nor do I understand what "ldap_add: Referral" means. So, I issued a
./ldapsearch -h agastya.ics.uci.edu -p 3089 -x -b 'o=dsm.ics.uci.edu,c=US'
And got to see the output:
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL
# search result
result: 10 Referral
# numResponses: 1
I don't see the base dn in the output. DOes that mean my install has a
Also, I'm looking to run a single ldap server. I need no referral
setup. The ref url specified is used more as a debugging message when the
command doesn't work. What does "result: 10 Referral" mean ?!
I looked for a similar issue on the archives but found a mail that was
unanswered. Hence, this now !
