Setting up a Company Directory
I have a question on how to correctly setup a company directory. I have
been doing some testing, but I seem to be stuck as I am unable to setup the
directory the way I would like to.
What I would like to do is setup our company to be in certain departments
on the LDAP server.
dn: cn=usernumber1, ou=Sales, dc=courtesymortgage,dc=com
dn: cn=usernumber2, ou=IT Department, dc=courtesymortgage,dc=com
Now, I am trying to grasp the concept of schema and object classes and how
they all intertwine to allow certain data fields into the directory. This
is where I am a tad confused. Let me show you my current LDAP and what is
[root@nitro openldap]# ldapsearch -x -b 'dc=courtesymortgage,dc=com'
# extended LDIF
# base <dc=courtesymortgage,dc=com> with scope sub
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL
# firstname.lastname@example.org, courtesymortgage.com
# search result
result: 0 Success
# numResponses: 4
# numEntries: 3
Now, this is just data I have entered to test and play with LDAP.
Obviously, I am missing something.
First question: The first part of the directory listed above shows the
company. Would I need to specify additional objectclasses in that field to
implement what I am attempting to do? Or, would I just enter the object
classes when I am making a entry?
I hope this makes sense.
I appreciate everyones input.
