Using the OpenLDAP proxy service

This section describes the Server Suite OpenLDAP proxy service (centrifydc-ldapproxy) that you can use to map Active Directory users to UNIX identities to enable access to the files stored on legacy network appliance servers and storage devices. OpenLDAP also enables Linux and UNIX computers to search Active Directory domain controllers and global catalog servers for any information stored in Active Directory. If you have the appropriate permissions, you can also use the OpenLDAP proxy service to add, modify, or delete information stored in Active Directory.
