Re: OpenLDAP/Heimdal integration questions (sorry if OT)

    About the subtree scope... I have taken a look to hdb-ldap.c (Heimdal 0.6.2), and it seems the one level scope is hard wired in two points: line 588, in LDAP__lookup_princ, and line 934 in LDAP_firstkey. I will change them to see what I get, but I'm just curious... is everybody maintaining a flat directory even with lot of entries? Does this have any advantage over organizing your directory using ou's? Maybe I'm missing anything?

    Best regards

    Hi there,

    I'm working on the integration of Heimdal and OpenLDAP, and I have some doubts:
  • Heimdal seems to be searching its entries in just one level of the LDAP tree, but I would like to have the entries organized in several levels. Is this configurable/hard wired? Am I doing anything wrong?
  • Heimdal and OpenLDAP communicate using an unix socket (ldapi://). The location of the socket is configurable in OpenLDAP, but can you configure this location in Heimdal, or is the /var/lib/ldapi location hard wired?
  • I have succeded in initializing a KDC database and adding some entries using the administration tool in Heimdal. I have noticed that Heimdal creates several binary values under the krb5Key attribute. I'm able to create these entries with ldapadd or using a graphical LDAP client except for the krb5Key values. Is there any easy way of creating these values without using the Heimdal administration tool? Until now what I have done is to create the entry and then set (change) the password using the Heimdal administration tool.
    Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but you seem to have a very good knowledge about these issues, and this list seems more active than the heimdal list.

    Thanks in advance, best regards
