    Need help configuring OpenLDAP

    I'm trying to create the equivalent of Novell's roaming profiles with Ubuntu Server 9.04, OpenLDAP and Samba.
    I know how to create and manage Samba but I can't seem to figure out how to configure OpenLDAP with their new configuration setup. When I use
    Code:
    apt-get install slapd ldap-utils migrationtools
    I am not prompted for anything it just goes. I also can't find the slapd.conf file anywhere. My current setup is
    Ubuntu Server 9.10
    Samba
    LAMP
    SSH
    FTP

    I've removed OpenLDAP for the time being. It would be extremely helpful to hear from someone seasoned in Novell and Ubuntu. I am totally lost on how to configure OpenLDAP to work with Samba and how to do anything with OpenLDAP. I am a beginner at Ubuntu but am learning quickly. Putting things in simplest form would be helpful but I can always Google stuff if I need to.

    I haven't gotten LDAP working yet, but wonder if you've seen any of the "Perfect Server" articles on howtoforge.com.

    Re: Need help configuring OpenLDAP

    Every current tutorial I have found on this topic is not up-to-date with the latest ubuntu versions.

    This very complete one (http://www.rrcomputerconsulting.com/...p?article_id=3) was written for ubuntu 7.10 but it works (for most parts) with 8.04. After 8.04 it probably wont work any more as there are some crucial changes made to LDAP.

    So please vote for this brainstorm idea: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/22151/ , as we need updated documentation on this topic (especially since a new LTS is about to be released).

    I finally found this guide.
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...%2Ccn%3Dconfig

    It was exactly what I needed.
