Hi all ldap people.
I have been trying this new way of configuring a slapd server from scratch. Sorry to say
total failure on my side. I'm not sure where to begin.
I have built a linux system from LFS Linux from scratch. So I want to install openldap
from source, so far no problems.
When my installation is done i have a directory in /etc/ named openldap and the content
inside is this:
To start configure my slapd using slapd.conf there is no problem. Actually I'm
beginning to think I'm pretty good att this. :-)
But then I try to read all I can find about configure a new slapd using slapd.ldif, not
I understand that I need a new directory named slapd.d. After that I have no clue.
I guess something is hardcoded in slapd but what am I supposed to do next?
How can i communicate with slapd ? I guess I have to define a password somewhere for a
manager or administrator but how and where?
Is there a tutorial somwhere ?
All I need is how to start. :-)
