I am following the guide https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/server...ap-server.html
for installing and setting up OpenLDAP and wanted to get clarification on something in the section titled:
Modifying/Populating your Database
In the first part I pasted below it says:
Let's introduce some content to our database. We will add the following:
a node called People (to store users)
a node called Groups (to store groups)
a group called miners
a user called john
Create the following LDIF file and call it add_content.ldif:
cn: John Doe
displayName: John Doe
gecos: John Doe
It's important that uid and gid values in your directory do not collide with local values. Use high number ranges, such as starting at 5000. By setting the uid and gid values in ldap high, you also allow for easier control of what can be done with a local user vs a ldap one. More on that later.
Add the content:
ldapadd -x -D cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com -W -f add_content.ldif
Enter LDAP Password: ********
adding new entry "ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"
adding new entry "ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com"
adding new entry "cn=miners,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com"
adding new entry "uid=john,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"
My question is, the first part that I have bolded and underlined says to create the file add_content.ldif and then shows a bunch of info, then the next part that I have bolded and underlined says add the content. Am I suppose to add the info from the first area in or the info from the second area into the add_content.ldif or do both sections get added into the one file. Or do you create 2 different files.
Just confused me
