Sehr geehrter Herr Henry,
i just moved an OpenLDAP-Server from Debian-5 to Debian-6. Expecting it would simply run
using the same configuration file i just copied slapd.conf. This resulted in error
messages along the line "missing credentials". So i looked up the
QuickStartGuide and continued debugging the authorization process - finally found the
reason and cure by reading /etc/init.d/slapd.
I would like to suggest two changes:
1 May i suggest a quick fix: add something like "don't read this"
to the top of the QuickStartGuide.
2 If possible change your mind on dropping slapd.conf-Support.
- Dropping it will break existing configurations.
- People are quite accustomed to /etc/.../.. .conf-files
I would like to add that i really appreciate the work you are doing.
Mit freundlichen Grüssen
