TheWeapon Posted April 18, 2010 Share Posted April 18, 2010 Hi there! I'm working for a faculty at my university. Students of that faculty used to have their own logins at that faculty's network, rather than using the general logins that all students get when they start their studies here. In order to decrease workload and to get rid of redundancy, my boss now wants to do just that. He gave me the task of finding out how to read info from a Novell eDirectory Server that supports LDAP queries and use that info to log the user in locally and assign him his home directory that is located on a server in the university's data center. The server in the data center is running Suse Linux Enterprise Server and Novell Open Enterprise Server, which includes eDirectory, iManager (HTML management console for eDirectory) and an LDAP server. I have set up a test environment with the above mentioned software on an ESX Server. Can someone give me some useful sources of information on this issue? Google didn't return very useful stuff. I'm apaologizing that my Post is written in a very general fashion rather than asking specific questions, but I have to get into that stuff a little bit first for specific questions to arise. Maybe there are some experienced sys admins here, that could give me good advice. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance! P.S. Sorry for my English, it's not my native language.
