In order for an Oracle Solaris client to use LDAP as a naming service, the following requirements must be met:
The client's domain name must be served by the LDAP server.
The name service switch must point to LDAP for the required services.
The client must be configured with all the given parameters that define its behavior.
ldap_cachemgr must be running on the client.
At least one server for which a client is configured must be up and running.
The ldapclient utility is the key to setting up an LDAP client, as it performs all of the above steps, except for starting the server. The rest of this chapter will show examples of how to use the ldapclient utility to set up an LDAP client and use the various other LDAP utilities to get information about, and check the status of, an LDAP client.
