Configuring SunLDAP instances …

July 30, 2007

<!–Assuming you’ve already installed either ds6 or the whole JES5 suite, you would be having default server instance got installed under /var/opt/sun/dsins1 ( linux ). You might need to create more instances with non-default parameters eg. DN and the ports, as per your requirements.

Doing so in ds6 commandline requires you to tap your <enter> key only twice

# pwd
# ./dsadm create -p 1389 -P 2345  -D cn=Manager /var/opt/sun/dsins2
Choose the Directory Manager password:< Type a password for your new DN >
Confirm the Directory Manager password:< Re-type >
Use 'dsadm start /var/opt/sun/dsins2' to start the instance
# ./dsconf create-suffix -p 1389 -D cn=Manager dc=india,dc=sun,dc=com
Certificate "CN=<your host-name>, CN=2345, CN=Directory Server, O=Sun Microsystems" presented by the server is not trusted.
Type "Y" to accept, "y" to accept just once, "n" to refuse, "d" for more details: Y
Enter "cn=Manager" password:

 Connect using any external ldap browser and populate your instance by importing the suitable ldif.

 The Inbox Zero Presentation at Google by Merlin Mann

I have been doing this for quite sometime and it really works. At worst before leaving the office I make sure my inbox is Zero bytes.

A must watch for anyone who get dozen-n-dozen ‘s in their inbox a day.

Top-notch cast. Formulaic beginning. Witty dialogs. Overall, an entertaining mistaken identity thriller. Much has been said about this movie. I just like to quote few samples from the script…


Mr. Goodkat: Charlie Chaplin once entered a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest in Monte Carlo and came in third; that’s a story.

Lindsey: What happen to your nose?
Slevin: I used it to break some guy’s fist.

Slevin: Okay, I’m under the impression that you’re under the impression that I owe you $96,000…?
The Boss: No, you owe Slim Hopkins $96,000. You owe Slim, Slim owes me. You owe me.

An ancient Port City on the Coromandel coast

July 19, 2007

Last weekend me and my family managed to make a quick visit to Tranquebar ( aka Tarangambadi ), an ancient busy port colonized by Danish which lost its importance in course of time.
