    • Emmanuel Lécharny Apache Software Foundation member Chairman of MINA project PMC of Apache Directory Project elecharny@apache.org / elecharny@symas.com
    • Apache Directory Studio 4
    • OpenLDAP configuration slapd.conf Or cn=config/ 5
    • Slapd.conf # See slapd.conf(5) for details on configuration options. include "/opt/symas/etc/openldap/schema/core.schema" pidfile argsfile "/var/symas/run/slapd.pid" "/var/symas/run/slapd.args" # Choose the directory for loadable modules. modulepath "/opt/symas/lib/openldap" # Load dynamic backend modules: moduleload back_hdb.la moduleload back_monitor.la # Sample hdb database suffix rootdn rootpw database definitions hdb "dc=example,dc=com" "dc=example,dc=com" secret # Indices to maintain index default index objectClass index cn directory cachesize idlcachesize checkpoint database eq "/var/symas/openldap-data/example" 5000 5000 512 60 monitor 6

    • Why cn=config ? Configuration in LDAP Can be replicated Allows dynamic configuration Protects against misconfigurations 8
    • But... People keep using vi/Emacs More complex than slapd.conf You have to use ldapadd/ldapmodify/ldapdelete 9
    • But... « It is of course possible for a careful, clueful admin to edit the files by hand without breaking anything. » « But let's face it, the majority of people out there, and particularly the people having problems that drive them to post on this mailing list, are neither careful enough nor clueful enough to qualify for these activities. » 10
    • Let's use Studio ! 11
    • OpenLDAP configuration plugin Don't have to lecture people who use text editors Config for dummies (almost) Many controls done by the plugin « smart » editors 12
    • Backend configuration 13
    • HDB configuration 14
    • Replication configuration 15
    • Options configuration 16
    • What's next ? Polish the editors Make it work with slapd.conf Add the missing elements Manage versions Release it !!! 17
    • Thanks!
