Re: Handling slapd.d in OpenLDAP and Kerberos

Quoting "sarathkrishna89@gmail.com" <sarathkrishna89@gmail.com>:

For authenticating via OpenLDAP, the principles needs to be rewritten (using
authz-policy and authz-regexp). We know how to do
that in older version of OpenLDAP which had (slapd.conf) but don't know how
to do the same in new OpenLDAP which has slapd.d directory instead.
The manuals also doesn't say anything on this issue.

The switch from slapd.conf to cn=config takes a little getting used to, plus the migration script may not work for you, but in the end I produced a set of procedures that should tell you most of what you want to know:

  * Integrated Kerberos-OpenLDAP provider on Debian squeeze

  * Integrated Kerberos-OpenLDAP consumer on Debian squeeze

True, I didn't use Ubuntu in these examples, but I would not be surprised if the procedures were almost identical, certainly with cn=config.
