Re: Installation openLDAP in Debian


It's so easy to use a single slap.conf text file, edit thorugh vi, then restart. Rsyncing include parts of slapd.conf between servers. Don't need an ldap browser to see it, can add comments easily. All my colleagues are still working with.I would change my opinion if there was a maintained official web interface to administrate the server.
You shoud put a doodle to ask openldap admins.

Are you using slapd.d
Are you using sasl
Are you using kerberos
Are you using multi-master mode

May be you will be surprised, may be me..


PS: anyway, I would like to thank the developers for their good job. Don't take my opinons as regrets of using OpenLDAP. I am stil an happy OpenLDAP user since 2001

Quanah: actually, documentation is not yet complete for cn=config, I
had to actually convert my slapd.conf to cn=config using slaptest in
order to find out how to do the same I had on slapd.conf on cn=config.
