Procedures to manage centralized authentication in a Linux enviro nment

Title: Procedures to manage centralized authentication in a Linux environment

I've been implementing LDAP for centralized authentication in a vanilla RedHat Linux 8.0 environment using BDB on HP Proliant DL 380 G3 servers.  By "vanilla" I mean that we're not using Samba, for example.

What I am wondering is this - after building the initial LDAP data base for centralized authentication, how do I manage the environment?

My belief is that many sites have solved this problem and have developed procedures for adding/deleting/modifying user accounts, having users change their passwords, assigning groups, etc.

Most of my research, however, has focused on technical issues such as how to configure the various LDAP-related files.  I'm not sure what to do next.

If anyone has a written procedure for administering LDAP centralized authentication, or a reference to one, I'd greatly appreciate being able to look at it.
