Everyone has good and bad days. The bad has come to my when one of IT's left company without saying "good bye" and leaving the most important
stuff: server passwords !!!!!!!!!!
I know root password to CENTOS 4.4 server. There is openLDAP server
that keeps all users (file,printer server) passwords. i am able to configure LDPA files and has SSH key. But dont want to messed up totaly
the most important server. If you have any technical advice please share. Thank You for any.
Thank You Billymayday. I have never thought that would be so easy. However, using that slappasswd under root@IP account is going only to change openLDAP manager password or all structure of LDAP (database, users, etc.)? We have already created database in openLDAP with hundred users. That database keeps their passwords for samba accounts. I am new to linux and dont want to messed up anything. I found usefull link: http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...ot.22_password
that shows step be step how to setup openLDAP with detailed configuration. Please advice. Thanks for any!!!
