Newbie - Need help and explanations
As I mentionned in the title of this email, I'm a complete newbie to
OpenLDAP therefore I need some help to configure my server.
For the moment, I just want to install such a LDAP server in order to have
a centralized address book and management system for the mail accounts of
- about 1000 email accounts
- postfix mailserver running on RH 8.00
Is there a way to automate the account creation to our LDAP directory with
the email creation using postfix ?
How can I populate my LDAP directory using the passwd file of my postfix
server and the alias file ?
I just wanted to install OpenLDAP with the minimum configuration
requirement, and use a GUI tools in order to create/populate my directory.
I wanted to try Directory Administrator or LDAP Editor/Browser, but I can't
use Directory Administrator as I don't know what is my DN (Search base, the
part of the directory tree ) and connection DN (user name) & password to
example of slapd.conf :
suffix "dc=ldap, dc=stooges, dc=org"
rootdn "cn=StoogeAdmin, o=stooges"
index cn,sn,st pres,eq,sub
what is the dn in such a case
what is the dn user name
Is the rootpw secret1 line specify that the password is stored in the ldbm
If I'm using slappasswd to generate a new password should I replace this
line by a new line such as
and that this means that the rootpw is the passwd to StoogeAdmin ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated !
