Working on LDAP for two days, first day waiting for a guy from Intel to do a demonstration on Shiva (not worth giving an URL, even if simple, since they just have a Solaris and NT version) Access Manager. I was quite fired up, because

  1. the guy was not prepared for the questions regarding LDAP integration we were going to make him, although we sent them a week in advance. Moreover, it took me thirty minutes to see how to make it work and he was not able even to find it on the help
  2. The versions are supposed to provide the sam stuff but there is no documentation in the Solaris version, whileas the NT Console comes with many help files. I do not say that they have to port the Administration GUI (even if it would not be difficult) but for heaven's sake, give me the documentation to configure it by myself (i.e without the GUI).

I was quite disappointed of commercial support.

Today I've been working with Netscape's LDAP, trying to build a new schema, I did not find a lot of documentation, until I looked at iplanet instead of NDS. The point is, I do not want to use the Java console for administration... just vi :)

I've had time to make a new package, or rather, adopt it. It seems that sac had not been updated in Debian, and I read in the wnpp that it was orphaned, so I took the latest version, updated it and sent it to the University's server in order to upload it to master today...
