Thread: LDAP basic questions...

    Default LDAP basic questions...

    Hi everyone , I am currently studying LDAP in the subject of
    migrating local users to LDAP server, for building central authentication system.

    I have come across some thing that puzzled me, and that is, MIGRATING /etc/services/ or /etc/protocols to LDAP server.

    I guess may question is what is the purpose of MIGRATING /etc/services or /etc/protocols across the network to lDAP Server ?.

    I recently came across , some information about How to configure
    OpenLDAP to work with Check Point Devices.

    besides being a central Authentication system, what other features does LDAP sever have?

    Could you please list some examples of the uses of lDAP with Cisco devices or other devices or services?

    What is the interoperability of LDAP with ACTIVE DIRECTORY?



    thanks to every one,

    Well.. those files are commonplace across server types, BUT the content
    may vary... this allows you to have a uniform source of the data across
    servers.

    See above.

    It's a database. So just like the above, you can use it to house data
    across platforms. How the data is used is a more important issue, but
    outside the scope of LDAP.

    Not sure.

    Microsoft uses two primary sources of configuration data. The registry
    for local things and Active Directory (LDAP) for things that are of
    interest across machines in a network.

    How is the data in /etc/services and /etc/protocols used
    when migrated into LDAP server container?
