OpenLDAP Client User Authentication
Senior Vice President of Content
Using a central authentication service in your organization isn't just a good idea - it's a great one. There's no reason to have different copies of user information on every server. Using OpenLDAP and PAM can enable clients to authenticate users without having a copy of user information locally.
You've been tasked to set up a central authentication server for your organization. Your team has decided on an OpenLDAP server to have clients authenticate against.
The base ldif files are provided in
/root/LDAP/LDAP. You'll need to install the required packages and set the server up, and then verify that the settings are correct by using the Client server provided.
