On my laptop I have Solaris 11 Express. On my SPARC workstations, I have the latest release of Solaris 10.

I went to Sunfreeware - Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Sun Microsystem's Solaris, download the packages, and used pkgadd to install them. Installed:


All installed in /usr/local

It would help if you answer more precisely (if at all) to my questions.

Anyway, there doesn't seem to be openldap packages for Solaris 11 Express on that site.

Perhaps are you attempting to install the Solaris 10 ones ?

and by the way, unless you really need 2.4.24, openldap is in the default Solaris 11 Express repository. All you need to do is:
# pkg install openldap

or use the GUI if more you are more comfortable with it. That will install 2.4.21 with all its dependencies.

Hey if your using solaris 11 this really easy
To install openLDAP in the GUI go to Systems-->Administration-->Package Manager
Put in the root password
do a search for openldap
check the box next to openldap and click install/update.
Your done

Now all you need to do is configure some files. You don't need the files from sunfreeware.
