  1. Log in as root.

  2. Start YaST > Network Services > LDAP Browser.

    Alternatively, choose Anonymous Access and do not provide the password to gain read access to the directory.

    The LDAP Tree tab displays the content of the LDAP directory to which your machine connected. Click items to unfold their subitems.
