openLDAP on Suse Linux ES
SLES uses the open-source implementation of LDAP, called openLDAP. It is already be installed on any system that uses the default installation settings. There are only a few files that generally need to be accessed directly:
/etc/openldap/sldap.conf – The main configuration file for openLDAP. It contains sections for defining the schema of the directories, the access control settings for the directories, and the general settings for each individual directory.
/etc/openldap/schema/*.schema – Directories follow specifically defined schemes. These .schema files define several standard schemes. Referencing these .schema files in /etc/openldap/sldap.conf applies these schemes to the openLDAP directories.
/etc/init.d/ldap – The init script used to start, stop, and restart the openLDAP service.
