Betreff: [389-users] Issue with 389
An: 389-users@lists.fedoraproject.org

Dear all,

I hope you can help me in order to set up my first 389 Server.

My situation : fresh install of 389 (Fedora 14), installed the 
DS via
yum from the standard repos. Everything seems to work properly, 
DNA as well.

Basically i've got 2 problems and 1 question.

First of all, i work with 389 console  ):

1) Adding a new group (e.g. administrator) i see that there is 
not the GID
attribute and i have to add it (by hand) every time (Advanced 
propertis---> Object class ---> Add value ---> Posix Group); 
it's very boring :-)
How can i fix this issue?
If not already, there will be a new version which has a tab for editing posix group attributes.
 In general, is it possible to modify 
Yes.  This is already in updates testing - see http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Release_Notes - this feature was added in Alpha 3.
the basic
DIT ? Indeed i'd like to add much more information (manager, 
company,...anso on) for each new users in a fast way.
The fastest way to modify LDAP is CLI (ldapmodify) ;-).
To exent the GUI for more attributes is possible but less documented.
The console is not very extensible in this way.  If you are a java programmer, you could add additional fields/tabs for the schema you are interested in.  For example, the recently added support for Posix Groups.

2) I'm writing a Web interface able to manage users account 
(e.g.:password).For some operations(reset pw) i need a Bind DN 
user, right? Ok, please
could you help me write an ACL (principle of least privilege) 
for this
user? i don't like to use the directory manage (cn=directory 
manager). My
idea is to create a new user able to handle only his OU, and 
nothing else!
You can add easy a ACI on that OU Node with the console:
Set access permissions

First you add a user who should get the permissions for manage the users, for example: uid=uhd,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com

Choose the container witch contains the users to manage and add there the ACI, for example:
(targetattr = "userPassword") 
(version 3.0;
acl "Permissions to manage user passwords";
allow (all)
(userdn = "ldap:///uid=uhd,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com")
The DSGW has a user self service password change page - http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/DSGW

3) I have a PKI. can i manage(store) users keys(public and private)
directly through 389? If so, how? could you point me in the right
There is also a Fedora CA project.

Thank you very much.

have a nice weekend
