To install OpenLDAP on Solaris, run the following command with root privileges:
# pkgadd -d certifier-openldap-2.1.8.pkg
To install OpenLDAP on HP-UX, run the following commands with root privileges:
# uncompress certifier-openldap-2.1.8.depot.Z # swinstall -s `pwd`/certifier-openldap-2.1.8.depot certifier-openldap

Next run the setup script:
This script will do the following:
- Prompt the user for the name and optionally other details of the organization hierarchy to be created.
- Prompt the user for directory administration user name and password.
- Modify the OpenLDAP configuration files.
- Insert an initial organization object to the directory.
- Optionally (upon explicit confirmation) insert an entry to the syslog daemon configuration file and signal the daemon about the new entry. This entry directs the OpenLDAP syslog messages to file
- Display suggestions about the Certifier publishing configuration.
OpenLDAP is set to start automatically after the system is rebooted.
If you want to modify the OpenLDAP configuration later, please consult the OpenLDAP documentation. The configuration file is located at:
certifier-openldap/etc/openldap/slapd.conf. The initial organization entry was created with the LDIF file
certifier-openldap/var/organization.ldif. New organization objects can be added by editing this file and running the following command:
$$ ./bin/ldapadd -h localhost -p 389 -D "name-of-your-admin-account" -w "password-of-your-admin-account" -f ./var/organization.ldif
