Setting up an Openldap server

The MI department provides an Openldap server at each workstation (Ubuntu / Linux only). The LDAP manager credentials are:

Bind DN:

cn=admin,dc=hdm-stuttgart,dc=de

Bind password:

XYZ

In addition Apache Directory Studio is in place and may serve as a means to conveniently establish LDAP communications. Console geeks may use ldapmodify and friends.

Set up a connection to your local LDAP server
  1. Open Apache Directory Studio.

  2. Activate the LDAP perspective.

  3. In the Connections window right click New Connection ... like in http://directory.apache.org/studio/users-guide/ldap_browser/gettingstarted_create_connection.html.

  4. Configure a connection to localhost using the above bind parameters.
