LDAP and DNS
I'm wondering if anyone can explain what's happening when I run an
strace on the following command:
ldapadd -W -D "cn=Manager, dc=stiller, dc=xyz, dc=com" < testldif.ldif,
and I see 3-4 attempts at polling 'localhost.xyz.com' (which adds a
substantial delay), and which eventually converts to simply 'localhost'.
My /etc/hosts file has:
127.0.0.1 still.xyz.com localhost
my /etc/ldap.conf file has:
base dc=stiller, dc=xyz, dc=com
my /etc/openldap/slapd.conf file has:
suffix "dc=stiller, dc=xys, dc=com"
rootdn "cn=Manager, dc=stiller, dc=xyz, dc=com"
index objectClass,uid,uidNumber,gidNumber,memberUid eq
index cn,mail,surname,givenname eq,subinitial
As an aside, I see a few sample URI's in the /etc/ldap.conf file as well
(they're commented out) - would it be better to use one of these, and if
so, are there any other configuration files I need to adjust in order to
One other question - if I'm not using simple authentication (with the -x
command line option), is it necessary to create a server certification
in order for SASL to work?
Thanks for any help.
