LDAP: another Student Employee problem. This time it was really fun because the person has a bogus SSN, and no barcode, birthday, pidm info to go on… Hopefully, I found the correct (the only) match with the name.
LDAP: build Mink as RHEL4/OpenLDAP 2.2.26 replica server…

  • Save /etc/krb5.keytab and /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
  • Install December 2004 UpdateXpress CD (4.01 doesn’t seem to work)
  • Update BIOS to do Console Redirection on COM1 at 19200,8N1
  • Install RHEL4 Update 1 from CD (Minimal Install)

    Oops… missmatch… ServeRaid 7.10.18 got part way installed, but the card is still at 7.00.14… this is a problem 🙁

    Ahhh… Figured out how and got the ServeRaid 7.10 code installed by hand! YeeHaw… use the .htm! 😉

  • Restore /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid file
  • up2date -p
  • up2date -uf
  • up2date -i ntp
  • Configure /etc/ntp.conf (add UVM servers and remove redhat’s)
  • Install uvmhidden kernel (carcajou has them)
  • Configure saslauthd to work (kerberos in general too)
  • Install UVM OpenLDAP packages
  • generate UVM SSL certificate
  • Don’t forget the /usr/lib/sasl2/slapd.conf file…
  • update iptables rules
  • update ldap master to replicate here…
  • dump database… install… start….
  • stand back and watch out for sparks…
  • update /etc/syslog.conf for slapd.log
  • install /etc/logrotate.d/slapd
