I am using Fedora Directory Server 7.1 on CentOS 4.3 (SMP kernal).
Now i want to administer FDS from the command line.so i am using
ldapadd,ldapmodify,ldapdelete ... commands.
I have no problem in adding an organizational unit or user to the
I am getting problem while try to add a new root suffix to the FDS from
the command line.
This is the process i am following to add a new root suffix
1) The ldif file (root.ldif) contains the following attributes
corresponds to the root entry
dn: cn="dc=newroot,dc=com",cn=mapping tree,cn=config
2) Then i am using ldap add command to add the root suffix which is
defined in the ldif file(root.ldif)
ldapadd -x -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w testingdir -f root.ldif
This command is get executed perfectly.Then i opened the FDS console.
Perhaps there is no error in the log file too.
3) Click Directory server > configuration
I have the entry for "newroot" and "newdb" is the database
4) Then If i open the Directory server > directory window i am not having
a directory entry for the newly created root suffix.
I don't have any problem if i create the root suffix from the GUI mode.
What could be the problem?
Can anyone pls help me to get rid of the problem?
Is there is any documentation available for administrating the Fedora
Directory server from the command line with trouble shooting
methods.(Now i am using Fedors DS administration guide.)
Thanks in advance.
