Hi all,

Trying to set up an LDAP server without DNS on 12.04.

Following this guide -- https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/server...ap-server.html

When I get to step 3 under the "Post-Install Inspection," I type
"ldapsearch -x -LLL -H ldap:///" but i get the error
"DNS SRV: Could not turn DN="" into a domain"

I am not sure if my syntax is correct.

Additionally, when it comes time to modify/populate the database, I am unsure what to substitute "dc=example,dc=com" with when I have no DNS service.

FYI, my /etc/hosts returns: localhost sw8

Anyone help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
