More how to's ?
I am currently looking into LDAP as a means for our authentication
methods. We need to provide an authentication method for a large amount
of users (10,000 plus).
At the moment one use would be for e-mail, we are setting up a large
amount of IMAP servers and would like a centralized authentication method.
I have downloaded the OpenLDAP 2.2 Administrator's Guide and am
currently reading it.
Put I have some out standing questions, if there is any other
documentation I should be reading could you please provide a link or
1. Mail store directory ?
With LDAP I understand that a user can authenticate their POP3 / IMAP
connection if the IMAP / POP3 server supports LDAP as a method. Would a
LDAP entry / setting also provide the directory / location of the users
mailbox store ?
2. Is there a limit to the number of "Organization" that a LDAP server
can have ? The one example in the documentation is "dc=example,dc=com"
with a Organizational Unit of "ou=People".
Could I create a Organization for each domain we have on a single LDAP
server ? I would assume yes.
Thanks -- again any more documentation that you can point my way would
