This is a book produced by merging numerous publicly available materials without too much input from the author. The author seems at a loss what to say when the good stuff is already said by others (other than changing "does not" to "doesn't", etc). Here're some suggestions, in case he plans to write a new edition. For instance, p.77, the first two search filter examples are too easy. But the third one needs a few seconds' thinking. Why not keep building progressively more complicated filters? They would be guaranteed not to be in existing materials. p.144, ACI parameter realm suddenly appears. This "realm" sounds different from that in SASL (p.98 and p.115). But "realm" is never explained anywhere in the book. There're other terms that mean differently but are not explained, such as NSS (p.136 for "Network Security Services" and p.249 for "Name Service Switch"). There're other places in the book that mention something only explained in later chapters, but they're not warned with "We'll explain this in Chapter XXX". The reason is simply that he copies a man page or somebody's article without thinking of adding anything to it. Arrangement of the text is sometimes unexpected. After about 20 pages of Perl methods copied from documentation, p.164 suddenly shows a program in C, not Perl.

This 2005 book discusses technologies of as early as 1998 (not in history section). It may be true that AuthLDAP and TransLDAP modules are not updated since then and C. Donley's web site is gone (pp.264-8). But a responsible book author should tell us anything new around this technology. You shouldn't duplicate Mr. Donley's 1998 article with no comments (and no credit).

check out page 67 of the book for a basic reason why this book is useless:

an entire page of a ftp session downloading openldap. huh? How is this helpful? getting the right version of BerkeleyDB and installing it, or installing and configuring OpenSSL would have been far more helpful to me.

This is another book composed mostly of cut 'n paste from the man pages, header files and varous scripts you can find with google.

Discussion on basic topics such as replication skips over key steps, examples for many issues are not provided or are hidden in the book. I use LDAP at work and I used the O'Reilly book to instal, configure and use OpenLDAP. I have yet to find a question that Deploying OpenLDAP can answer that I can't get faster with google.

I've read some of the other LDAP books out there and have always complained that they are a bit dated. This book covers modern features of LDAP, reinforces the standards, and is easy to read.

This book covers more recent RFC's that are typically not even mentioned in other references. It also encompasses both commercial and open source solutions to problems of scaling, standards, and interoperability.

Multiple solutions to problems are given for your benefit. Multiple programming languages are covered to make this a complete reference.

The book has an interesting history of LDAP vs. X.500. It covers some of the basics of entries in LDAP and a bit about schemas, also it talks about installing OpenLDAP and has a bunch of scripts and info on how to hook it up with some common apps.

However, I got this book to figure out how to get OpenLDAP working on my home network. I needed to learn about schemas, and here the book falls down. It covers the basic ideas of a schema, but doesn't discuss the different schemas delivered with openldap (what is cosine.schema and why should I care?) and it doesn't give enough examples of how one would use the schemas - I would really have liked to see all the ldif entries for a whole small network covering users and groups, for example.

In the end, I still don't understand why I'm getting LDAP errors when trying to add users with Webmin. I'm disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Tom Jackiewicz's "Deploying OpenLDAP" provides a good introductory reference to the world of the LDAP administrator, and has a few gems not seen in previous works. While this book contains the usual discussions on compiling and installing the OpenLDAP server, as well as some sample code using implementations of the LDAP API in various languages, it sets itself apart with its detailed treatment of mundane but critical topics such as the LDAP Schema (with reference material on hard-to-find information like a listing of every attribute syntax code and what it means), as well as thoughtful best practices advice. While this is not "the only LDAP book you'll ever need" (there is no such thing, and probably never will be -- the topic is way too broad and ever-changing), it is a valuable compilation that can be recommended for every directory admin's library.

Format: Paperback
This is a great overview that covers all the necessary components of an LDAP deployment, whether you use OpenLDAP or any other implementation. Tom Jackiewicz covers everything from the management decisions necessary before you start your deployment, to the schema, directory information tree, and then goes on to more details topics on the installation and API. This is a fast paced book and covers in just a few pages what other books fill with useless garbage and repetition.
