This section contains information about LDAP support in OES.
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Services for Novell eDirectory is a server application that lets LDAP clients access information stored in eDirectory.
Most OES 2 services leverage the LDAP server for eDirectory for authentication, as illustrated in the service overviews in this guide.
LDAP for eDirectory provides LDAP authentication for the objects stored in eDirectory. As you plan your eDirectory tree, be sure you understand the information in Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP7 Administration Guide.
If you have users in an OpenLDAP database and you want to migrate them to eDirectory, you can use the Novell Import Conversion Export (ICE) utility. For more information, see Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP7 Administration Guide.
