Re: authorizing in Netscape LDAP Server


The iPlanet Directory Server come with at least three directory:
1. NetscapeRoot
2. config
3. userRoot

Your user dn and password should be under the (3).
Now, let's say you have a domain suffix that is like "dc=ralph, dc=net", then

all the user information should be store under "ou=People, dc=ralph, dc=net"
Like, for example a user with uid of ralph will be like the following:
dn: uid=ralph, ou=People, dc=ralph, dc=net

I hope it helps.  This is based on the version 5.x.
If it is 4.x, the domain suffix might be a little different, your best bet
might be ask the other side to send you an entry of a user, it will give you
a good idea what their tree is like.
Good luck!


ps: Just in case, login id should uid password should be userPassword.
;-)  Have Fun.
