User administration in modern heterogeneous networks is often very cumbersome. Every network service and every operating system has its own user database. The synchronization of these databases is almost impossible. However, many services and operating systems offer an LDAP connection. This course will show you how to use OpenLDAP to create a Set up the directory service and connect the most important services. However, OpenLDAP alone offers only inadequate Possibilities of authentication. But in combination with Kerberos it is a powerful system. New: OpenLDAP 2.4 with Multi-master replication.
Prerequisites: Experience in the administration of a Linux system.
