I have three top level objects, all objectClass=nisMap:


Then under auto.master there are two objects with objectClass=nisObject:

nisMapEntry=ldap:nisMapName=auto.groups,dc=example,dc=com -g

Only the home entry is "required", the other is for a mount at /groups which I was using for ... group directories.

Under nisMapName=auto.home there are all my user directory objects which all have objectClass=nisObject:


Where the first one is for "all users" and the / and & are wildcards for the username which doesn't match any other entries in the map. So a username "tom" would be mapped to "" if he didn't have a separate entry.

The group objects are all children of nisMapName=auto.groups and are similar in content to the ones shown above.

I didn't put this in LDIF format and I assume you know a little about LDAP already, so if not I can expand a bit I suppose.

A nice project that makes dealing with LDAP a lot nicer is I liked it enough I got his commercial offering, but the open version is very helpful for administration.
