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.

ud - interactive LDAP Directory Server query program SYNOPSIS
ud [-Dv] [-s server] [-d debug-mask] [-l ldap-debug-mask] [-f file] DESCRIPTION
ud is used to interogate a directory server via the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). OPTIONS
-s server Used to specify the name of an LDAP server to which ud should connect. If this flag is omitted, the value specified in the ud configuration file is used. If no value is specified in the configuration file, or the configuration file does not exist, the name ldap is used. Of course, it is up to the system administrator to make sure that the name ldap can be resolved (presumably through the use of a CNAME or A record in the DNS and the appropriate search path specified in the resolver config file). -d debug-mask Sets the ud debug mask to the value specified. Values for the mask can be dumped by using the -D flag. -f file Sets the configuration file to the name specified. -l ldap-debug-mask Sets the LDAP debug mask to the value specified. -v Turns on verbose output. Also toggable via the ud verbose command. -D Prints out a list of valid ud debug masks. FILES
/etc/openldap/ud.conf The ud configuration file. SEE ALSO
ud.conf(5), ldap.conf(5), ldap(3) DIAGNOSTICS
ud will try to be nice about error conditions, and in most cases prints a warm and fuzzy error message when it encounters a problem. Some- times the error will be unexpected, and in these cases, ud uses the ldap_perror() routine to print an informative diagnostic. BUGS
Too numerous to mention. AUTHOR
