I use openldap 2.2.13 on RHEL and having 4000+ entries.
I have the following requirement.
1. Add one attribute for all the records.
2. Set a value to it, which is already set for another attribute of
the same record.
A SQL command of the following type would have done this job, if my
data was in SQL.
Is there any equivalent Openldap command, which can be used to do this.
Thanks for your help.
I create my own OID in a .schema file that i include in slapd.conf and it works great !
attributetype ( 184.108.40.206.4.1.4220.127.116.11562 NAME 'sbzoneid' SYNTAX 18.104.22.168.4.1.1422.214.171.124.15 SINGLE-VALUE X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )
with "159562" a number of my choice that is not already used by openldap.
Now i'm trying to get a ldaps connection with the backend ldap server.
I want my openldap proxy to check the backend certificate with the CA certificate that i put after TLSCACertificateFile.
The issue is that the ldaps connection works everytime without checking the backend server certificate.
The configuration line with TLSCACertificateFile has no effect on the ssl connection !
I saw that TLSVerifyClient enable to force the certificate check of the client conneting to my openldap proxy but i don't see how to force the openldap proxy to check the backend server certificate.
Then, i had 2 .cer CA certificate (a root and an intermediate) that i concat in 1 certificate. Does openldap support .cer ? or should i rename it in .pem ?
thank you for your help

For the previous directory server which we used we had not used any specific
OIDs.Now for openLDAP i need to have a specific OID.
I have tried out all possible sample OIDs and have failed.........so now i
have gone back to my usual string instead of an OID,,,,like,,,
DESC 'This attribute defines the role'
DESC 'This is Usergroup Type'
DESC 'SSA User'
SUP ssabase STRUCTURAL
MAY( telephonenumber $ title $ mobile $ displayname $
facsimiletelephonenumber $ preferredlanguage $ postaladdress $ c ) )
DESC 'SSA Supplier'
SUP ssauser STRUCTURAL
MUST businesspartnerid )
but still the same problem persists.......that is either my schema file isnt
being referred by server or an error saying
ldap_add: Invalid syntax (21)
additional info: objectClass: value #1 invalid per syntax
KINDLY let me know as to how to get any OID for my purpose........or can i
get away with having strings as OIDs.......
abd where else should i look into .
WAITING FOR UR REPLY!!!!1

The requirement comes from RFC 4512.
I suggest you read RFC 4512 as well as the Admin Guide section (9.2)
discussing custom LDAP schema design. The former covers the
particulars of LDAP attribute type and object class descriptions,
the latter provides some additional information, including
answers to the questions you posed.
