Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Test the LDAP Data View

  1. As a user under dc=example,dc=com, search all entries in the LDAP data source to verify that you can read from the data view.

    % ldapsearch -p 1389 -D "uid=kvaughan,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" -w bribery \
     -b dc=example,dc=com "objectclass=*"

    Note –

    You must use the credentials of a user under dc=example,dc=com. If you want to use cn=Directory Manager, you must define a data view to handle that DN.

  2. As a user under dc=example,dc=com, modify the userPassword attribute to verify that you can write to the data view.

    % ldapmodify -p 1389 -D "uid=kvaughan,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" -w bribery
    dn: uid=kvaughan,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
    changetype: modify
    replace: userPassword
    userPassword: myNewPassword

    Note –

    A default ACI in Directory Server allows users to modify their own passwords.
