OpenLDAP setup

At work I'm been givin the task to move are backend servers from NIS to LDAP. We have mostly Solaris 10 servers, as well as a few Redhat servers. I am going to use openLDAP as the LDAP server. I'm looking for a good how to guide on setting up the openLDAP server. Most of the docs I have found seem to fall apart around the configuring of the server and ldapclient setup. Most of the guilds are for Linux servers and Solaris seems to have more steps. I would also like to find a active forum for LDAP question.

If anyone has any experience with his I would love to get some guidance. I installed openLDAP with a package from At this point I just want LDAP to work and I'm not concerned with security, I can lock it down after the fact.

I'm having two issues that I can tell right now .I'm having trouble getting the “ldapclient init” command to work. When I try to start the LDAP with svcs says it is maintenance mode. I'm thinking that I have an error in one of the files I have edited.

Any help would be great.

ldap_start_tls, ldap_start_tls_s, ldap_tls_inplace, ldap_install_tls - LDAP TLS initialization routines LIBRARY
OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap) SYNOPSIS
#include <ldap.h> int ldap_start_tls(LDAP *ld); int ldap_start_tls_s(LDAP *ld, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls); int ldap_tls_inplace(LDAP *ld); int ldap_install_tls(LDAP *ld); DESCRIPTION
These routines are used to initiate TLS processing on an LDAP session. ldap_start_tls_s() sends a StartTLS request to a server, waits for the reply, and then installs TLS handlers on the session if the request succeeded. The routine returns LDAP_SUCCESS if everything suc- ceeded, otherwise it returns an LDAP error code. ldap_start_tls() sends a StartTLS request to a server and does nothing else. It returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the request was sent successfully. ldap_tls_inplace() returns 1 if TLS handlers have been installed on the specified ses- sion, 0 otherwise. ldap_install_tls() installs the TLS handlers on the given session. It returns LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR if TLS is already installed. SEE ALSO
