I already have OpenLDAP up and running, but I need to add the
memberOf overlay. From what I’ve read, the slapd.conf is being depricated.
When I did my install, I never used the slapd.conf file and configured all the
options LDIF ldapadds (sudo ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f base.ldif).
Would I create a LDIF file with the memberOf configs, and if so,
what would that file look like,
Or, should I use the slapd.conf and do a “moduleload
memberof.la” as a global setting? If I do this, will I overwrite any of my
other changes that are not in this file (which may have been configured from

some articles talk about the slapd.conf file; others are talking about
an ldif file, etc. Two questions keep coming to my head everytime.
I have an Ubuntu box with OpenLDAP installed via apt-get. I need to
utilize the memberOf attribute.
1) Based on my installation method (OpenLDAP from apt-get), what is the
suggested method to use to obtain the memberOf functionality?
2) Will I need to create an LDIF file for every group I have or create
in the future? Is there something I could do in the schema to always
include the memberOf in the every user I create for any group?
I think that the example in the docs is clear enough if you think it over :)
