iFolder 2.1 -- Need to create new iFolder_LDAPnn object

Don't laugh. Yes, we're still running iFolder 2.1.8 on a decrepit
NetWare server. Its LDAP source is a different decrepit NetWare server
that I'd like to retire, since I figure we have to keep iFolder running
for at least another six months. I have a new server in the same
eDirectory tree, but I can't find the appropriate snapins to create the
LDAP object iFolder appears to require.

Does anyone know what might happen if I copied the existing
iFolder_LDAP01 object to a new object, then changed its name and IP
address?


Thanks

It might work. By all means try, FWIW, the Initial LDAP server is found
through a config file:

httpd_ifolder_nw.conf in \\Server\SYS\apache2\ifolder\server

Copying the existing object and changing its IP address did work, and
the iFolder management console now shows it under Global Settings ->
User LDAPs without me having to add it (I wasn't expecting that!).
Now to schedule a time to disable the original LDAP source and see if
iFolder still works.



Thanks

Did you check the config file I pointed to? To read eDir, iFolder needs
to find it and that is when the initial LDAP server in the file is used.

Yes, I knew about that config file, and I will of course edit it before
I disable the original LDAP source. I just didn't know how to create the
new iFolder LDAP server object in eDirectory, which I assume is needed.


Thanks
