My O'Reilly/Unix imprinting would lead me to buy "LDAP System
by Gerald Carter (O'Reilly). It seems to be clear, exhaustive and well
organized. Unfortunatley, I have seen that a few Amazon readers
this book as a "bunch of well-known stuff collected on the Net".
I agree with opinion of these Amazon readers, I don't think that's a
despite of O'Reilly fame.
A good alternative seems to be "Deploying OpenLDAP" by Tom Jackiewicz
(APress). This books seems to be very specific of OpenLDAP and more
than Carter's. Despite the very good reviews I have read at Amazon's,
have the feeling that this book is not as well organized as Carter's.
I bought this book and I think it's very useful for LDAP system
very detailed about major problems you can find while configuring
Another good choice seems to be "The ABCs of LDAP: How to Install,
Administer LDAP Services" by Reinhard Voglmaier. Unfortunatley, I was
find just one review on the Net and I would like to hear a few more
on it before buying.
I don't know this book, sorry
Finally, I'll probably buy "Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory
Services" by Timothy Howes, Mark Smith et others, just because I need
introductory book that deal with database design/creation and other
high-level topics. Anyway, this is a different matter than SysAdmin.
I also bought this book, it's a very good book, maybe too much theoric
you can learn LDAP basis trough that book, for example if you don't know
what's binding, or how work SASL, or so much other things like
If you want necessary theoric knowledge of OpenLDAP protocol and
operations you could buy "Deploying OpenLDAP", else, if you want to know
deeply OpenLDAP protocol buy "Understanding and Deplying LDAP Directory
Services" and also read RFC documents about LDAP Protocol.
