Button on the right. Select the appropriate data type (usually the Base64-encoded ASCII) and the file containing the signed certificate. Later in this chapter, we show how to create the OpenSSL certificate authority. The same utility may be used to sign the GS kit produced certificate requests. Converting system maps to LDIF The mksecldap program may print a message informing the administrator to restart ldif2db. In this case, one can use the sectoldif program to convert user and group maps to the LDIF format.
Conf. It is a flat ASCII file and usually resides in /etc/openldap. We show a sample configuration in Example 2-10 on page 42. The OpenLDAP configuration consists of two parts: The global options and the database (or back-end) options. Global options apply to the slapd directory server. They are followed by zero or more back-end definitions. We discuss the most used options. conf(5) man page for more details. Global options The OpenLDAP distribution includes several LDAP schemas. Those used in back ends must be specified in the global options part.
Powerful users such as root should not be distributed; the security implications are too serious. System users and groups may have the same names on different platforms, but most often they do not have the same UIDs. No standard has been Chapter 2. Centralized user management 29 adopted yet. These UIDs and GIDs own various system files and it would be virtually impossible to change them without jeopardizing the system’s functionality. Both AIX and Linux feature tools to convert various system maps to LDIF, which can be imported to an LDAP server.
