Centos Directory Server

Centos Directory Server

We are going to used Centos Directory Server (Centos DS) for Users management base on LDAP. This can be many ways of managing users in LDAP enviroment. Using Phpldapadmin, using Horde by customize the hooks.php or by using Centos Directory.

We decided to try Centos DS

To install Centos-ds please read this manual

http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/DirectoryServerSetup

and

http://www.howtoforge.com/centos-directory-server-on-centos5.2

and

http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/CDS/install/8.0/

For more information about centos-ds you can search Fedora Directory Server. Centos-ds and Fedora DS are related. :)

Another problem.

Centos DS schema is in a slightly different format from OpenLDAP schema.

In our migration plan, we need to migrate Dbmail users to OpenLDAP. With the different of format of schema we need to rethink about it.

Our plan. Dbmail -> PADL migration script -> Centos DS migration tools.

Another move is to used FreeIPA

FreeIPA is an integrated security information management solution combining Linux (Fedora), Fedora Directory Server, MIT Kerberos, NTP, DNS. It consists of a web interface and command-line administration tools
