Subject [users@httpd] Mod_auth_ldap and Novell e-dir
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2005 19:20:50 GMT

I'm trying to build an apache (2.0.54 on SunOS 7) that will be able to
interface with Novell e-Directory to authenticate users using
mod_auth_ldap.  I have a build that works using the OpenLDAP libraries
and normal ldap://, but when we try to do the same thing using ldaps://,
I get errors that indicate that OpenLDAP doesn't support the DER
encoding for the certificate.

So I was thinking of using the Novell LDAP SDK, but that doesn't appear
to be straight-forward.  Using the following options:

  --with-ldap=ldapsdk \
  --with-ldap-lib=/export/home/cching/novell/cldap_2005.07.18/lib \
  --enable-ldap=static \
  --enable-auth-ldap=static \

I get the following compile error:

"util_ldap.c", line 1568: undefined symbol: LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_CACERTFILE

So, delving into this a bit further, I see a preprocessor macro:


That looks interesting.  AFAICT, the only way to turn this on is by
using srclib/apr-util/include/apr_ldap.hnw for apr_ldap.h.  Copying that
over gets me further, except that I get these link errors:

ild: (undefined symbol) ldapssl_init -- referenced in the text segment
of modules/experimental/.libs/mod_ldap.a(util_ldap.o)

So, has anyone gotten the Novell LDAP SDK to work?  Any other hints for
how I could go about making mod_auth_ldap work with Novell e-Dir?

Thanks for any help!
