LDAP and Novell's eDirectory
It's been a long time since I have used Novell's Netware for anything and at that time I was using it for a file and print server. Recently I have been using OpenLDAP on Linux and have been experimenting extracting info from AD using Linux tools. Out of interest I thought about testing eDirectory with OpenLDAP too.
I have built a NetWare 6.5 server as a guest running in Virtual Box. Netware 6.5 in Virtual Box.
The NDS tree hierachy follows the same pattern as for the AD w2k3 server, it is located in a subdomain the Netware server is authoritative for, nds.mydomain.pri. The server related objects are placed in OU=servers, DC=nds, DC=mydomain, DC=pri and users are in OU=users, DC=nds, DC=mydomain, DC=pri.
A basic search query looks like this:-
-bash-3.2$ ldapsearch -h 192.168.1.51 -x -D cn=admin,ou=people,dc=nds,dc=mydomain,dc=pri -b dc=nds,dc=mydomain,dc=pri # extended LDIF # # LDAPv3 # base <dc=nds,dc=mydomain,dc=pri> with scope subtree # filter: (objectclass=*) # requesting: ALL # # nds.mydomain.pri dn: dc=nds,dc=mydomain,dc=pri objectClass: domain objectClass: top objectClass: ndsLoginProperties objectClass: ndsContainerLoginProperties ...edited....
