In this final part of our three-part series, we reach the conclusion everyone has been waiting for. The ultimate goal of using LDAP (in many cases) is enabling desktop authentication. With this setup, admins are better able to manage and control user accounts and logins. After all, Active Directory admins shouldn’t have all the fun, right?
In this first piece, I’ll be demonstrating the installation and configuration of OpenLDAP on Ubuntu Server 18.04. All you will need to make this work is a running instance of Ubuntu Server 18.04 and a user account with sudo privileges.
This tutorial describes how to set up and configure virtual mail hosting with an LDAP backend. Software we will use in this howto: Postfix (MTA), Dovecot (IMAP / POP3), Gnarwl (vacation), OpenLDAP (LDAP) and vMailpanel as the management interface. Optional are Proftpd FTP, Roundcube (webmail) and MariaDB (SQL backend for Roundcube).
If you happen to administer one or more OpenLDAP servers, you know that they can be a challenge to work with. Working with LDAP itself can be a bit tricky; to that end, many opt to go the phpLDAPadmin route (which is an amazing tool for individual servers). There’s one particular piece of software that does an outstanding job of managing multiple LDAP servers: Apache Directory Studio.
In the following article we’ll show you how to install SOGo and use it with LDAP on a CentOS 7 Linux VPS. If you’re looking on how to set it up on an Ubuntu Linux VPS, please refer to our guide on how to install SOGo on Ubuntu 14.04 VPS.
SOGo is a fully supported and trusted groupware server with a focus on scalability and open standards. SOGo is released under the GNU GPL/LGPL v2 and above. SOGo provides a rich AJAX-based Web interface and supports multiple native clients through the use of standard protocols such as CalDAV, CardDAV and GroupDAV, as well as Microsoft ActiveSync.
Ever wanted/needed to setup an OpenLDAP Server that can passthrough the password portion of authentication to a Windows DC LDAP Server? Well recently I happened to set something up to do just that so we could accomplish a single sign on solution for our Linux/BSD/Unix systems and AD systems. What was most interesting is the group I work in only supports and maintains Linux/BSD/Unix systems. We actually did not need to directly access a single DC we only needed a service account.
This document describes how to install and configure OpenLDAP in Debian/Ubuntu Server. I will use OpenLDAP to configure a corporate organizational structure through OpenLDAP.
Contacts and events everywhere - successful syncing between thunderbird and android with Baikal
I got a new Android phone lately and was wondering how to handle my life. New phone, new chances, new life ;-)
I have a lots of contacts. I used to store addresses in an openLDAP server, but I found these hard to manage especially since Ubuntu 14.04 does not ship "luma" anymore! I used to run radicale, but I did not manage to fix my sync-performance issues.
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for accessing directory services. It runs on a layer above the TCP/IP stack incorporating simplified encoding methods, and offers a convenient way to connect to, search, and modify Internet directories, specifically X.500-based directory services.
This Open Source Guide is about LDAP, OpenLDAP 2.x and ApacheDS on Linux and the BSD's (FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD). It is meant for newbies, Rocket Scientist wannabees and anyone in between.LDAP is a complex subject. This Guide was born out of our pathetic attempts to understand LDAP, since it promised a veritable nirvana - common source for information, unlimited scalability using a replication model, inherent resilience, fast read performance, fine-grained control over who can do what to what data - the list goes on. Wonderful stuff.
Celeum makes ARM based devices that exclusively run open source software.
Directory services is one of the most interesting and crucial parts of computing today. They provide our account management, basic authentication, address books and a back-end repository for the configuration of many other important applications.
This course will help you understand the benefits of LDAP as well as implementation of LDAP. The OpenLDAP Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, fully featured, and open source LDAP suite of applications and development tools. The project is managed by a worldwide community of volunteers that use the Internet to communicate, plan, and develop the OpenLDAP Suite and its related documentation.
At this years UKUUG's annual Large Installation Systems Administration (LISA) conference I gave a talk on OpenLDAP Replication Strategies. You can grab the OpenLDAP Replications Strategies PDF or SlideShare version. Other presentations regarding OpenLDAP that day (including one from Howard, the Projects Chief Architect and Symas CTO), OpenLDAP and MySQL: Bridging the Data Model Divide and Andrew Findlays Writing Access Control Policies for LDAP

This how to will allow you to configure a Postfix mail server with virtual hosting. Virtual hosting means that you can add as many maildomains as you want and subsequentially as many mailboxes for these domains as you want. Here we we use an LDAP backend for both the MTA (Postfix) and POP3/IMAP server (Dovecot), and a web based management interface.
With Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex, the way OpenLDAP is used and configured has changed. In Intrepid, OpenLDAP is no longer configured via the slapd.conf file, but via the slapd.d directory that contains ldif files to configure OpenLDAP.
In this article, we cover setting up an Active Directory server for use, connecting to it, searching for information, adding, modifying entries, and removing entries. We also examine how to deal with LDAP errors, and get finer control of the results from a search operation. This is followed up by a class definition that encompasses all this functionality into a simple package.

Zivios is an n-tiered PHP-5 application and uses MySQL and OpenLDAP as its data store, with OpenLdap being the primary back end for identity management and application integration and MySQL being used for panel specific data.
I updated the replication section of the OpenLDAP Admin guide last night to the final version discussing Push Based Replication, i.e. what slurpd does in OpenLDAP 2.3 (dropped for various reasons, but since the docs won't be available properly until 2.4.11 is out I'm posting it here.
This document is a step by step guide for configuring Ubuntu 7.10 as a Samba Domain Controller with an LDAP backend (OpenLDAP). The point is to configure a server that can be comparable, from a central authentication point of view, to a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller. The end result will be a server with an LDAP directory for storing user, group, and computer accounts. A Windows XP Professional SP2 workstation will be able to join the domain once properly configured.
