Re: openLDAP architecture - centralized repository and authentication

OpenLdap will definitly provide that, as I'm using it for all my new linux instances

Subject: openLDAP architecture - centralized repository and authentication

Hi all,


I’m far from being openLDAP and more generally Linux advanced user but I’d love to be if I could find some architecture guidance for the following use case. (I’ve only been playing from time to time with openLDAP on Windows boxes – shame on me J)


I’m currently using 30 Linux server in my business unit. Almost 10 different sysadmin have to administer those servers.  I’d like to have a centralized directory gartering all those 30  x 10 accounts so that I could have one single place du manage my identities. All my servers could then authenticate agains this directory.


Could openLDAP and some adding tools provide me the right architecture to reach this goal ? Any pointer on this issue will please me ( Google only lead me to basical information about configuring openLDAP on standalone linux boxes)


Thanks a lot
