ok, will start this on a high/basic level to make sure i am headed in the right direction, We want a central database of users, so naturally I looked at openldap. It's not a 1-2-3 as much as Fedora's directory services seems. So I have installed it on a fedora machine, added my company DN, as well as a few test users.
Now I setup my fc7 desktop to look @ him as an ldap server, pointed to that IP and saved. Tried to ssh in as a user not on the local machine thinking he would look to the DS server and authenticate, but it fails as if the user is not there.
So the high level question is, that is how it's supposed to work right? I used a windows ldap browser and connected, fetched the DN from a dropdown it found (confirming it's running, and has the right context) but couldn't browse the tree (I don't know if DS let's you view that way).
But if the above is the case, there is a lot of reading but no clear cut client setup connect like this. So any help, step in the right direction will be appreciated. I tried openldap, was able to browse the tree, but the same result when I tried to ssh in as my test user.
Also, didn't see anything on the forums, so are people using it?
