ldap setup for authentication
I've been wrestling with ldap for quite a while now. I've read lots of stuff and maybe i'm confusing myself (not too difficult!).
Anyway, I'm trying to set up ldap authentication on suse 10. I have gone thru the process in the suse documentation (on the novell site).
My question is this:
Why isn't the slapd daemon running? Everything I do tells me that ldap is not running or that it can't connect. I can't see the slapd process in the processes list. Is slapd installed on suse as a default? If slapd is not showing as a process does that mean it's not there? If so how come the documentation doesn't say anything and Yast2 tells me that the ldap server is installed?
Ok that was more than one question but can someone help? Please? The more I read the more confused I seem to get.
