LDAP System Administration 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

While the book does an excellent job of outlining how to use OpenLDAP for a wide variety of purposes, it's no longer up to date. This book covers OpenLDAP 2.1.x. With the release of OpenLDAP 2.3, configuration for the server has been moved into the LDAP database. A large portion of the book is concerned with configuring the server using the old flat file structure. While the settings haven't changed significantly, adapting the instructions to the new system isn't easy. I hope an updated edition is in the works.
