I am looking to set up Directory services on FreeBSD and need some suggestions on install/configuration.  Should I use OpenLDAP or some other 3rd party/commerical application that runs on FreeBSD?

    Accepted Solution

    You should not.  FreeBSD works without Directory Services.

    I think you misunderstood the post - I am looking to set up Directory services ON FreeBSD 'servers'...much like running Active Directory on a Windows 200/2003 host, or eDirectory (Novell) on Linux.

    Again, is there anyone that has already implemented Directory services ON FreeBSD?
