LDAP on RHEL 5 or 6
 
We currently have our LDAP server running on a RHEL 5.6 server. I can see the hand writing on the wall and wonder if there is a good reference on setting up LDAP from scratch on RHEL 6 that will NOT be talking to Windows A.D.?

First, upgrading from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6 is pointless. The latest version is 7.x, and if you're doing a fresh install, get the latest versions of things. Not only are you going to have a longer server-life, but be supported longer too, not to mention loading the latest software is MUCH easier, when you have things current.

Secondly...openLDAP on RHEL5 is really no different than RHEL 6 or 7....it's the configs that are important. Add to that the tools you have to export your current LDAP to an LDIF file, and the ability to import that makes things pretty easy. And if you want a how-to guide, did you try just putting "how to set up openldap on rhel" into Google??? The first hit (when using a "7" after the rhel) is:
https://access.redhat.com/documentat...y_Servers.html

...along with similar guides for everything from RHEL 3 forward. Since you're using RHEL 5, are you PAYING FOR IT??? If not, stop where you are....load the latest version of CentOS instead. There is no point running a production server that is not going to have bugfixes/patches/security fixes applied to it...since, if you don't pay for RHEL, you WILL NOT get them.
