OpenLDAP replication on Ubuntu Lucid with cn=config backend

von Mario Rasser

Introduced with Ubuntu 9.10 OpenLDAP uses the cn=config-Backend for “live” configuration of the LDAP-Server without restarting the service. The benefit of the “live” config feature is bought by a complexer configuration with LDAP Syntax and LDIF-Files.

I will describe a easier way to setup a OpenLDAP Replication using slapd.conf as a base for the cn=config-Backend.

The shown way is based on OpenLDAP shipped with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid) using SSL. The master LDAP-Server configuration is not part of this HowTo. So we are considering you have a running Master LDAP Server, that is already configured to provide LDAP Replication mechanism.

Atlassian Confluence 3.1.2 on Sun Glassfish V2

von Mario Rasser


Confluence is a Enterprise Wiki from Atlassian, which is just awesome. It is supporting tons of free and commercial Plugins and Themes. It is perfect for documentation, document management and working in Teams.

We are using it since the middle of the last year starting with Version 3.0.2 running on Sun Oracle Glassfish V2 Application Server. The first Upgrade try to Confluence 3.1.1 failed caused by compatibility issues of Apache Xerces. Denny a colleague of mine figured out a way to solve that issue.

The Confluence setup it self is well described on the Atlassian Homepage, but as Atlassian is not officially supporting Sun Oracle Glassfish Application Server, this post will describe how to get Confluence running on Glassfish V2.

How to install VMWare Tools on Ubuntu (tested on Ubuntu 8.10 and 8.04 LTS) in a rush:

  • Within your VMWare Infrastructure Client or WebGUI do a “Install VMWare Tools”
  • VMWare will provide a ISO Image with the VMWare Tools to the Virtual Machine
  • SSH to the Ubuntu Server you want the VMWare Tools be installed
  • OPTIONAL but prefered:
    sudo su -
    aptitude update
    aptitude full-upgrade
  • do the following steps as root or prefix a sudo:
    aptitude install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
    mount /dev/cdrom
    cd /media/cdrom0/
    cp VMwareTools-2.0.0-122956.tar.gz /usr/src/
    cd /usr/src/
    tar xfzv VMwareTools-2.0.0-122956.tar.gz
    cd vmware-tools-distrib/
    # answer the question via defaults
    init 6
