Re: Needed: LDAP 101

I can't remember where I came accrossed it, Amazon.com perhaps, but I believe there is actually a new book comming out in January on deployment of LDAP. I bumped into it while doing some research. Hopefully it covers Database Management for LDAP as well as just getting the servers to work. Anyway, as I recall it was by Mark Wilcox, the same guy who wrote Wrox's "Implementing LDAP." Implementing LDAP mostly covers NDS though not OpenLDAP and also had a clientside focus rather than a serverside focus. The new book is supposed to focus more on OpenLDAP.

There is a lot of information out there.   Once you have read the openldap
tutoral and read the manual or maybe before or during the read of the manual
you might want to look at:

ftp://kalamazoolinux.org/pub/pdf/ldapv3.pdf from Adam Williams.

More than anything else, start a small project and use it.
