The Puppet modules - Part 2 (389DS)

This time around I thought I would tackle something a bit more challenging, 389 Directory Service ( jlcox/ds_389 )

Anyone who has gone through setting up an LDAP server knows that it can be hard to get it the state that you need for production and once it is there it is hard to maintain.

Enter Puppet.

This module now installs the service and can process in add or modify ldif files. It can also turn on encryption of the database fields if required.
