Evolution & LDAP


Has anyone got LDAP to work successfully with Evo 1.2.1? I've got LDAP that's running on an Exchange Server here @ Work, but I can't seem to get LDAP to work. It works Fine in Mozilla mail... can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance!

What exactly are you trying to get out of LDAP? I have gotten it to work in both read and write.

I'm just trying to get LDAP to work, period. I'm trying to replace Outlook at the place I work, but it's kind of hard to convince people to replace it if Evolution doesn't work with our LDAP servers. I've gotten Mozilla, Netscape, Outlook to all work with our LDAP servers. Could you maybe tell me what steps you took to get it to work? I'd appreciate it very much and you'd be helping me replace Windows w/Linux at my place of work. Thanks...

You need to use the evolution schema that is included in the evolution source....

cd evolution-source
find . -name evolution.schema -print


After you include that in your ldap config you need to create a place where the contacts should exist:

ou=People,uid=jsmith,ou=People,dc=microsoft,dc=com
^ Personal addresses

You must use permissions so that only the authenticated user can write to his own addressbook and probably no one else can read it either....I cant help you with this as I am not good with permissions, or rather, cant remember off the top of my head and I dont have it implemented anymore...at least not at this job.

ou=People,dc=microsoft,dc=com
^ Should already exist and is your public, company-wide addressbook

Slapd config file

Hi Terry,

I'm also having troubles with my ldap server (openldap, debian sarge, 2.6), I think it runs fine, but I don't know how to create the "database", or OU, that should contain my evolution contacts. Couls you please terll me how you did this and post you slapd.conf?

Thanks (I'll start by looking at the evolution schema)

Benjamin
