[Unofficial] Sneak peak: OpenLDAP 2.4.17 almost out!

AsteriskOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec There's been lot's of hard work gone into 2.4.17 and I say it every time, but this is the best release so far!

A huge thanks to the following significant contributors to this release:

Howard Chu (Symas Corp)
Hallvard Furuseth (University of Oslo)
Quanah Gibson-Mount (Yahoo! Inc)
Ralf Haferkamp (SUSE Linux)
Gavin Henry (Suretec Systems)
Pierangelo Masarati (Sys-Net)
Rein Tollevik (Basefarm AS)

It's been 3 months almost to the day since 2.4.16 so you'll see lot's of fixes and a new tool. It always amazes me that there are still bugs even though OpenLDAP is so stable, widely deployed and so fast! Well, software will always have bugs ;-)

The nice new tool is Slapschema: "Slapschema is used to check schema compliance of the contents of a slapd(8) database." See man slapschema (8)

For complete fixes etc. see the OpenLDAP CHANGES file.

Oh, and where are all my new docs? We've been so busy with existing and new clients that things have slipped, sorry. Lots of work with our partners Symas too and we're also prepping a new VoIP platform for Suretec Telecom called SureVoIP (which OpenLDAP plays a big part!).

More later and upgrade, upgrade, upgrade!!

Reminder: OpenLDAP Replication Strategies presentation tonight

OpenLDAPOpen SourceSuretec OpenLDAP has been replacing proprietary directory server offerings in the private sector, public sector and the financial sector at an increasing pace. This is largely due to its performance and scalability, dynamic configuration capabilities and flexible extensibility via bundled modules.

OpenLDAP would not have earned its place in these sectors without enterprise grade replication options.

In this talk, an overview of the latest production ready OpenLDAP 2.4 replication features will be discussed and the numerous best practice strategies will be presented covering the most common deployment configurations found in the wild.



19:30 in Room L13.18, 13th Floor, Livingstone Towers at Strathclyde University, Glasgow.

AsteriskLinuxOpenLDAPOpen SourceSuretec Just a quick one to say that we now have svn commit access to the res_config_ldap RealTime driver to maintain it and the Asterisk LDAP[?] schema in the Asterisk source code.

Any bugs you find, please report them!

Realtime Integration Of Asterisk 1.4 With Kamailio/OpenSIPS 1.5.x

All that is left is to switch to LDAP[?] authentication using the OpenSIPS LDAP module and res_config_ldap Asterisk plugin ;-)

Cheers.

Alternative DNS Servers - Choice and Deployment, and Optional SQL/LDAP Back Ends

OpenLDAPOpen SourceSuretec I had the great pleasure of meeting Jan-Piet Mens at this years UKUUG LISA where I did a talk on OpenLDAP Replication Strategies.

We've talked many times before on the OpenLDAP mailing lists, but it was great to finally meet him. He actually hand delivered a signed copy of his book Alternative DNS Servers like he promised too!

I've only had the time to briefly go through it, but I'm very impressed! What is really good with respect to OpenLDAP, is that the whole appendix on OpenLDAP is perfect!

Anyway, Alternative DNS Servers is available from Amazon and has its own website too.

Thanks,

Gavin.
