Planning Client Profiles and Default Attribute Values for LDAP

By going through the previous planning steps (network model, DIT, and security model), you should have some idea of the values for the following profile attributes.

  • cn

  • defaultServerList

  • preferredServerList

  • bindTimeLimit

  • searchTimeLimit

  • profileTTL

  • defaultSearchBase

  • defaultSearchScope

  • serviceSearchDescriptor

  • attributeMap

  • objectclassMap

  • followReferrals

  • credentialLevel

  • authenticationMethod

  • serviceCredentialLevel

  • serviceAuthenticationMethod

Of the preceding attributes, only cn, defaultServerList, and defaultSearchBase are required. They have no default values. The rest are optional, and some have default values.

See Chapter 12, Setting Up LDAP Clients (Tasks) for more information about setting up LDAP clients.
