Getting started with Novell eDirectory in Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2004-10-16
I just completed a fresh install of Novell eDirectory in WS2003. In order to connect to it using LDAP Browser, I need to know the hostname, base dn, and the dn of the admin user. Can someone please help me get started by providing tips/solutions for the following questions.
1.) Do I have to have a DNS entry for the domain that I am running my eDirectory on? For instance, external.nds.com? (If Yes, what exactly do I need to add, and how)
2.) Which IP address and hostname do I use to query my new eDirectory?
3.) How do I determine the DN of the admin user? I'm sort of confused because the top level of my directory installation is t=external, and I was expecting it to be ou=external. Does the tree name always begin with t ??
