missing ldap files

I'm trying to setup an ldap server for personal use. I've never setup ldap before, and am a bit confused.

All the tutorials I have found tell you to edit a file "slapd.conf". This file does not exist in the location that the tutorials suggest, nor anywhere else on the system.

Similarly, I have no /usr/local/etc/openlap directory, nor any of the core.schema, cosine.schema or inetorgperson.schema that are supposed to reside in /usr/local/etc/openldap/shema. They are nowhere on the system.

I recently upgraded my RH9 to FC2. I did a yum update openldap and am told it is up to date. rpm -q openldap tells me I am running openldap-2.1.29-1.

Should I just create these files manually? It seems like the fact that they are missing indicates openldap is not installed correctly ... I was under the impression that /sbin/service/openldap or /sbin/service/ldap would start the server, but that service is not recognized.

Any suggestions?

You simply try searching for them first? The rpm you installed might have just configured the conf directory differently, etc.


Those commands are your friend.

Yes, I did do a search for them. Nowhere to be found.
