RE: openldap install questions

I downloaded and unzipped openldap-stable-20100719.tgz which is openldap-2.4.23.  When I ran ./configure, it ran for a few minutes and stopped with "configure: error: BDB/HDB: BerkeleyDB not available".  I then ran ./configure --disable slapd to complete the process.

Honestly, I am not sure what pieces of openldap is needed by Degreeworks.  The documentation for Degreeworks just shows that Openldap is required.   I am trying to create single sign-on for Degreeworks via our Luminis portal.  Our Luminis login is different from our Degreeworks login.  There are settings within Degreeworks for LDAP in order to match the Luminis login to the Degreeworks login but it does not appear to be making the match because it's trying to use the luminis credentials to login to Degreeworks.

What was the exact error message?

Did you then used ./configure --disable-slapd ? If yes, you only built the OpenLDAP client libs and tools. Is this what you want?

Hmm, I don't have a clue what you want to achieve. Do you need a LDAP server?
I don't know Degreeworks at all.

Ciao, Michael.
