Re: OpenLdap Installed and configured but dont know how to make use of it.
Hi Manish. Nice to hear from ppl @ Delhi
Sorry, I have no experience with this
1. How I configure this openldap server so that I can retrive entries in windows address book. please direct how to configure addressbook as well.
With the proper configuration for ssh authentication and LDAP user info fetching, you won't require any local account with the same name on your Ubuntu box
2. In above configuration i have created a person entry as Rahul Sharma, so is it neccesory to have a local user account of Rahul Sharma in ubuntu in order to login through ssh to this ubuntu server using ldap authentication?...Means is it neccesory that we should have same account of ldap person in our ubuntu linux.?
If you are referring to different users having same gidNumber as their primary group, then that is quite possible.
3. I know that a uidNumber should be unique for every entry but what about the gid number?
However, if you are referring to different groups having same gidNumber, then that is not a good idea.
I don't LDAP by itself will stop you from creating multiple entries for Users with same uidNumber of multiple entries for Groups having same gidNumber. But only the one which is found first will be honored by the system
I think Samba documentation provided at their official website should be good point to start.
4. I want to configure samba authentications with this openldap server. please instruct the best way to do it.
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth !!
Mark it [SOLVED] if the issue has been resolved
