Your best bet is to use the ipa-admintools package. This way you don't have to work about the LDAP internals.

You probably don't to install this on every client. rob _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipafirstname.lastname@example.org https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
