To Populate the LDAP Repository

After configuring an LDAP repository for PAM, you push user entries to the LDAP store.

For example, you create a new, single user named George Washington that is subordinate to the following entry:


In addition, you use an ou=people container that is subordinate to the base DN you provided to idsconfig. You might have to make contextual changes to the base DN you are going to use.

  2. Click New Entry to display the New Entry screen.

  3. Type a value in the Entry Parent DN field to specify the location to save the entity in Directory Server and click Next.
