Ubuntu 11.10 help page for kerberos and ldap uses deprecated commands

Bug Description


In step 5 of the Ubuntu 11.10 help page for Kerberos and LDAP it tells the user to add the kerberos schema to the existing schema using the command:

ldapadd -x -D cn=admin,cn=config -W -f /tmp/cn\=kerberos.ldif

which no longer works as of openLDAP something or other.

The new command can be found on the samba and ldap help page for 11.10 which uses the proper syntax:

sudo ldapadd -Q -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f cn\=samba.ldif

which modified for the Kerberos tutorial would be:

sudo ldapadd -Q -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f cn\=kerberos.ldif
