LDAP Servers

LDAP Servers

The LDAP server is an essential feature of estos MetaDirectory. Contacts, which are provided by replicators, can be sought through the LDAP server.

TLS Port & IP Interface
Specify the TCP port number and the IP interface through which the LDAP server should offer its services.

TLS Port & IP Interface
Specify the TLS port number and the IP interface through which the LDAP server should offer its TLS services.
A certificate accepted by the TLS clients must be chosen.

LDAP root password
The password entered here will be the password for the LDAP server. With this password, you will be able to view all of the LDAP server's data regardless of the passwords stored in the Database Management system. The user name needed for the password is cn=root, dc=meta.

A status display indicates the status of the LDAP server.
The settings usually need to be altered only in special cases. Therefore, it is best to leave the settings unchanged.
Each instance of estos MetaDirectory running will require its own password.
You will find additional technical information about LDAP servers on the LDAP Servers and Fields page.

Advanced Settings

Default DisplayName
If the DisplayName has not been explicitly set by the field assignment, a DisplayName consisting of Surname and Given Name or Given Name and Surname will be generated and imported to MetaDirectory during replication.
A DisplayName will also be generated according to this setting for non-replicated contacts, for example if such originate from telephone books. If a Given Name or Surname are not available, only the available component will be used as the DisplayName. If both fields are empty, the company name will be used as the DisplayName.

Include Pictures with Contacts
estos MetaDirectory can include pictures with the contact data. If you enable this option, the pictures for the contacts will be read from the source databases, or from a path configured in the replicator, and stored in the LDAP database during the replication process. They will subsequently be provided both through LDAP as well as from the integrated web server. The replicator for Active Directory will import the "jpegPhoto" Active Directory property (or "thumbnailPhoto", if "jpegPhoto" is not available). The export replicator for Active Directory will store the contact picture in the "thumbnailPhoto" Active Directory property. The picture data will not be verified.
