Installing and configuring LDAP on CentOS 6.2
Posted on 2012-04-13
I am pretty new to linux and am working on migrating and existing LDAP server to a newer OS version, CentOS 6.2. I have managed LDAP using phpldapadmin before so I was shielded from the underworkings of ldap.
The old server is using openldap and I am trying to migrate it to the new server. I have exported a .ldif from the old server, but am having issue installing and configuring ldap on the new server.
I have been looking through the literature and have been confused with what has to be done to get it going.
Can anyone help me in the right direction? basically I want to be able to get the new server to the point where I can restore the ldif file from the old server.
After that I will open up another question regarding replication. I have created a linux cluster and want HA for ldap, I believe that openldap has replication, but I am sure it will not be easy.
