Dear Experts:

We have installed Suse Linux Enterprise 11 also registered for the support and updated the server with patches but the day shift admin has done this work while completing the installation installed the ldap server and made the server as ldap client. Now i want to configure this server as LDAP server and make this server as samba domain controller but now my interest is to completely remove all the ldap configurations done by the day shift admin and i want to do the ldap server and client configurations from the begining (clean the existing and do it from the begining). Please suggest me how to do this , please help.

    Dear Experts: will it be sufficent if the ldapserver and  ldap client is reconfigured as per the below:
    open the terminal-->Yast--ldapserver. # do changes as required or start from the begining
    open the terminal --Yas---ldapclient  # do changes as required  or start form the begining.
    remove all the ldap packages and reinstall

    Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

    My suggestion is to speak with the day-shift admin to find out exactly what he did.  Removing all the packages could be a step in the right direction, but without knowing everything else that the other admin did, you could be creating new problems for yourself.
