Chapter 4. OpenLDAP: Building a Company White Pages

The previous chapter discussed how to install OpenLDAP and provided an overview of the slapd configuration file, slapd.conf. However, we have yet to launch the server, let alone add any data to the directory. Using the slapd.conf from Chapter 3 as a starting point, this chapter shows you how to create a company directory for storing employee contact information, including postal addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers.
