I’ve had the opportunity to work on OVD 188.8.131.52 recently and I would like to share couple of experiences.
First comes first Local Store Adapter. Why we need this? The requirement is to provide unified view of two different Active Directories (it could be of any other LDAP). I’ve created 2 AD Adapters and to get Root View I should create Local Store Adapter.
Lets assume the mapped Namespace of AD Adapter 1 is : ou=OrgA,ou=Users,dc=ovd,dc=dev
Lets assume the mapped Namespace of AD Adapter 2 is : ou=OrgB,ou=Users,dc=ovd,dc=dev
So the mapped namespace for Local Store Adapter is definitely dc=ovd,dc=dev. I’ve created the LSA adapter with dc=ovd,dc=dev Root Namespace. However I could see null entries under Root after expansion.
Here is why?
First we need to create an LDAP structure in OVD schema with LSA namespace say dc=ovd,dc=dev as shown below. ldapadd command can be used.
That’s not all.
We also need to create structure ou=Users,dc=ovd,dc=dev in OVD LDAP schema with contents given below. Remember that contents of this file has changed because the objectclasses associated with entries are different. Since we are ou=Users, it belongs to OrganizationalUnit class and hence ou attribute needs to be defined. If you are using cn=Users,dc=ovd,dc=dev then container objectclass has to be used.
description: Users container
Use ldapadd command to upload the above ldif file.
It is all set now. Remember that you don’t have to create an LDAP entry ou=OrgA,ou=Users,dc=ovd,dc=dev because AD adapter has already created this entry. Refresh the LSA root node in ODSM client view and expand to see the entries.
