ldapadd command

I am on Red Hat 6.x

I have ldap running on my system, as follows:

[root@mmclnt1 openldap]# yum install openldap-servers
...
Package openldap-servers-2.4.23-34.el6_5.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

[root@mmclnt1 openldap]# service slapd start
Starting slapd: ln: creating hard link `/var/run/slapd.pid': File exists

[root@mmclnt1 openldap]# chkconfig slapd on
[root@mmclnt1 openldap]#

Open in new window


I also checked the following:

[root@mmclnt1 openldap]# chkconfig --list
...
slapd           0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
...

[root@mmclnt1 openldap]# yum search ldap

By the way, I also did the following:

[root@mmclnt1 openldap]# ps -ef | grep slapd
ldap     23608     1  0 10:38 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/slapd -h  ldap:/// ldapi:/// -u ldap
root     23856 20519  0 11:49 pts/2    00:00:00 grep slapd

you probably have only server installed, no client utilities.

you did only yum search, not installation:

yum search ldap

Open in new window


try to install all packages:

yum install *openldap* -y

Open in new window


and if you are sure your slapd process is fully configured an running fine, then  you should be able to use ldap commands after that.

please let me know if that helped (installing other openldap packages)

Open in new window
