Hi Dennis

We will do some testing for development DBs using openldap on cygwin (very
obscure setup, I know). Afterwards, I might have to move the stuff to AD
(since the dev site is more of a windows shop). I will have to read some
stuff (I'm more of a UNIX person), so it might take a while before I'm
actually going to find the time to do this (like September).

Betreff: RE: OpenLDAP instead of OID

Congratulations Stefan!

Thanks for posting this.
Do you (or anyone else) have any ideas for doing this with Micro$oft Active
Directory?

Hi list

Some people where interested in feedback regarding the usage of OpenLDAP
instead of OID or Names to resolve TNS strings.
Seems to work;). Here is what to do:

Prerequisite: I used openldap-2.0.23 instead of 2.1, since I had to use
CygWin to test it locally on my laptop.

Bill of materials:

CygWin http://www.cygwin.com, I used the latest version, 1.5.2-1test

Oracle Client, version >= 8.1.6.x

OID LDIFS, can be taken from $ORACLE_HOME/ldap/admin, if the OID option is
installed, or from
Oracle Disks:
Disk3\stage\Components\oracle.oid.server\9.2.0.1.0\1\DataFiles\admin.1.1.jar

HowTo: http://home.nc.rr.com/jtlayton/oid2openldap.html

Simply follow the howto to get openldap running and include the OID schemas.

Then, create an ldap.ora under $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin, which looks like
this:

DIRECTORY_SERVERS=localhost:389
DIRECTORY_SERVER_TYPE=oid
DEFAULT_ADMIN_CONTEXT="cn=Manager,dc=world"

... and change sqlnet.ora to contain:

NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (LDAP)

Finished, enjoy.
Stefan
