James Lancaster will present this month's meeting covering LDAP (Lighweight
Directory Access Protocol), and how to setup an integrated LDAP/SMB/CUPS/NFS
environment, allowing both Linux and Windows clients for a server.
You can visit his current project at http://sloppyadm.sourceforge.net. Currently
in Alpha, it works, but is not very error-proof (requiring the admin(s) to not
screw up), it also currently only works for installed systems.
An explaination of LDAP can be found here:
An excerpt follows:
A Directory is like a database..
you can put information in, and later retrieve it
..but it is specialized.
Some typical characteristics are...
* designed for reading more than writing
* offers a static view of the data
* simple updates without transactions
A Directory Service sports all of the above, plus..
a network protocol used to access the directory
..and perhaps also..
* a replication scheme
* a data distribution scheme
