Many network administrators are implementing OpenLDAP based directories for a variety of purposes and find the concepts a little more difficult to implement than expected. This tutorial will help them to come up to speed with OpenLDAP in a very short time.

LDAP directories are increasingly being used to host DNS databases, telephone directories, User account databases for UNIX/Linux system access control as well as for Samba.

This tutorial will walk through examples of how OpenLDAP may help your company to grow and to become more efficient. Each example is discussed in detail. Each will include a live implementation and demonstration. It will punctuate the day with a working configuration for the fully implemented solutions discussed.

The tutorial is based on the new book, "OpenLDAP by Example". Like the book, it approaches the challenges of OpenLDAP implementation with real-world case studies. It tempers each configuration with a fully implemented, working example.

The core of focus will be centered around how to deploy OpenLDAP with Samba-3. The tutorial covers OpenLDAP directory design, implementation and management.

Attending this fast paced tutorial will help you to deal with complexities and will enable you to find the answers you need for todays' demanding network environments.
