+++++Some notes about ldap and fc5 upgrade of ldapsun This is because its ldap is pointing at ldapsun, which is helpmaboab. Neil upgraded this to fc5 and :-

Yes, this is because the openldap configuration under FC5 doesn't allow external access to slapd, as it did by default under FC3.

You can open up access to slapd by following the example in, say, kingsmen's profile. I'm actually in the process of looking at a 'site-slave' header to turn machines into accessible ldap slaves... however...

There seems to be a bit of a proliferation of aliases for ldap lookups... anyone know why we have sun specific ones? I think the correct aliases to point towards would be bpdir, atdir, fhdir, kbdir.


Toby suggested that rather than do this, we point at some of kbdir, atdir, bpdir etc. Setting up a list of kbdir and atdir seems to have dome the trick for har :-

bash-2.05# ldapclient mod -a defaultServerList="kbdir.inf.ed.ac.uk
System successfully configured

bash-2.05# ldapclient list
NS_LDAP_SERVERS= kbdir.inf.ed.ac.uk, atdir.inf.ed.ac.uk
NS_LDAP_SEARCH_BASEDN= dc=inf,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk

bash-2.05# getent passwd neilb
neilb:x:26289:10000:Neil Brown:/disk/home/neilb:/bin/bash
