Personal address book using LDAP?
I have been struggling to create a personal address book using LDAP. The
goal is to be able to centralize my address book in a single place where
i can access it from anywhere with e.g. Mozilla. In this way I don't
really have to do synchronization anymore. (Synchronization is evil :-).
I have been able to get OpenLDAP up an running on a Redhat 8 box. I also
have an existing list of personal addresses in ldif exported from
Outlook or Mozilla.
What I have *not* been able to do is to import the addresses into LDAP.
It looks like the Mozilla and Outlook exported ldif files refer to an
object class called mozillaAbPersonObsolete that I was not able to find
anywhere, but that seems to be necessary to model fields such as
I am not closed to making a "manual translation" of these fields, but I
have not been able to figure out what should I translate them into. The
thing that puzzles me is that Mozilla is all geared to connect to an
LDAP server to get addreses, so there should be a standard schema I
could use. Or not?
All help is welcome, particularly if anyone has been able to do what I
am trying to do.
