Does anyone know of a good GUI tool to update, add or delete LDAP
This question is asked very often.
Please see: http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/271.html
Note that there are generic LDAP clients/browsers (like my own
http://www.web2ldap.de) which let you edit LDAP entries for getting started
but does not help much if you'd like to get a highly automated system
perfectly serving your daily administration needs.
There is another category of LDAP clients which focus more on "users" and
"groups" for certain LDAP-enabled services, e.g. pam_ldap, nss_ldap, Samba,
etc. Other LDAP clients focus on "address books" whatever that means in your
personal context. Naturally these clients lack support for things they were
not written for.
Also don't trust *all* software floating around. Make a security review!
Also, does anyone know of an out of the box intranet site that
works with LDAP to allow employees to update their LDAP entries?
I always suggest to use <your-favourite-web-scripting-language> to implement
your own one which perfectly suits your needs.
