OpenLDAP

OpenLDAP setup takes a while...

Configuration files are in /usr/local/etc/openldap.

List all entries:

ldapsearch -x -b 'dc=tim,dc=digicol,dc=de' '(objectclass=*)'

Create a new entry using a text file like the following:

dn: cn=Tim Strehle,dc=tim,dc=digicol,dc=de
objectclass: inetOrgPerson
jpegPhoto:< file:///data/00/00/00/616.jpg
sn: Strehle
givenname: Tim
uid: tim
userPassword: secret
mail: tim@strehle.de
mail: tim@digicol.de
labeledURI: http://tim.digicol.de/data/00/00/00/616.jpg

Then run:

ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=tim,dc=digicol,dc=de" -w secret -f /tmp/newentry

or

ldapmodify -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=tim,dc=digicol,dc=de" -w secret -f /tmp/newentry
