Re: LDAP on RHL 9

I have to admit, I don't have much experience using LDAP, but I can answer the first question.

1) rpm -qa "openldap*"

It will list all open LDAP packages installed (you only need the one. don't need the devel etc.).

2) I'd start by reading the documentation that came with it (rpm -qd openldap), which will be a whole swag of stuff in /usr/share/doc/openldap-*/. After that, look for the LDAP-HOWTO on www.tldp.org (something like http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LDAP-HOWTO/).

3) Umm.. Can't help you with that one.. Sorry.

There is also Red Hat set up page on ldap, which may contain what you need :

Try on your HPUX box the commands referenced here, there are good chances that it works the same...

Re: LDAP on RHL 9

Hi,

At http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/docs.php you will find the best LDAP tutorial I have seen so far... They have 4 articles and papers related the stting up LDAP.

It's based on Mandrake but will work on RedHat.

Thanks,
JP
