I'm doing something egregious, I think; I'm working on a project without looking to see what progress has been made on it, if any, in the past:OpenLDAP appliance. I think I'm reconciled with this because it's a weak spot for me and a really weak spot for my organization.
My goal is to be able to patch an existing LAMP appliance running several patched applications so that I can have my students login to each appiance with the same login.
I've done a build with web front ends and the openLDAP suite, which was a bit more than I can handle at once.
So I'm going to post in stages.
