Installation
Install the packages,
yum install openldap-servers openldap-clients
 
 
Restart from scratch / clean up
If something goes wrong just after a french install, eventually clean up the whole db up,
rm -rf /var/lib/ldap/*
cp DB_CONFIG.example /var/lib/ldap/DB_CONFIG
chown -R ldap:ldap /var/lib/ldap
Note for DB_CONFIG : otherwise you get this slapd log : bdb_db_open: Warning - No DB_CONFIG file found in directory /var/lib/ldap: (2) Expect poor performance for suffix dc=example,dc=com.
 
Check everything is gone,
slapcat
 
 
Configuration
Edit the configuration,
vi /etc/openldap/slapd.conf
Initialize the db, create an init.ldif containing this,
dn: dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
o: Example Company
dc: example
 
dn: cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: organizationalRole
cn: admin
Ref. http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/quickstart.html
And create the db,
slapadd -l init.ldif
 
 
Usage
Check db's content,
slaptest
ldapsearch -x -b 'dc=example,dc=com'
ldapsearch -x -b 'dc=example,dc=com' '(objectclass=*)'
ldapsearch -x -b '' -s base '(objectclass=*)' namingContexts
