troubleshooting LDAP on fedora
Posted on 2011-03-03
I have recently been tasked with troubleshooting some issues with some Fedora 14 servers. There are several servers and they use LDAP for authentication which is located on one of the Fedora servers.
however the mounts on the servers will become unavailable every 1-2 weeks. At that time the LDAP server has to be restarted and then the mounts are available again. Right now these servers are not critical, but we are going to be relying on them more and more.
Now I have used Fedora a little bit and have a very basic understanding of it. I am primarily a Windows system admin. But I need to start trouble shooting these issues.
What I need is a place to start to find out what the issues are. I am sure that there are log files somewhere that will point me in the correct direction, but I have not the slightest on where to start looking.
Does anyone have any clue where to start looking, or where I can start looking to get more information for you?
