Question on implementing OpenLDAP
I have a question about configuring LDAP.
I am currently using the stable version of OpenLDAP on Red Hat 8.0.
What I want to do is setup LDAP to hold some specific information about our
company. Only problem is that I still have a lot to learn and there is a
ton to earn.
I would like to setup our LDAP server to be able to authenticate our users.
I have been testing, adding users and information, but I am stumped a bit
and need some help.
I would like to setup organization like so:
dn: cn= randomuser, ou=Managers, dc=mycompany,dc=com
Of course, I would like to implement different departments. For example,
sales, IT, Managers, servers etc.
Here is a entry I was trying to put into our LDAP server for testing purposes.
[root@nitro schema]# ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=mycompany,dc=com" -W
Enter LDAP Password:
cn: Jason Williams
cn: Williams, Jason
gecos: Jason Williams
adding new entry "uid=jwilliams,ou=InformationTechnology,dc=mycompany,dc=com"
ldapadd: update failed:
ldap_add: Undefined attribute type (17)
additional info: uidNumber: attribute type undefined
Ok, so I figured it was something with the schema. I have been reading all
the documentation that I have found to try and figure out what exactly I am
Can anyone shed some light on what exactly I may be missing and what I can
do to fix this issue?
Here is my slapd.conf file for reference:
# See slapd.conf(5) for details on configuration options.
