Does anyone know of a good resource (online or otherwise) for best practices or standards for naming and organizing eDirectory or Active Directory groups? Thanks, mandi Mandi Witkovsky IT Policy and Planning Analyst IPFW Campus - Kettler Hall 205A witkovsm@ipfw.edu (260) 481-0722
Not sure about a standard but as I was looking into a similar question last week I came across UC Berkeley's online documentation of their LDAP schema. Here's their people entry schema definition: https://wikihub.berkeley.edu/display/calnet/People+Attribute+Schema And here's an example record: https://wikihub.berkeley.edu/display/calnet/People+Entry+Example And this is their overall schema design: https://wikihub.berkeley.edu/display/calnet/LDAP+People+Entry+Structure If you look through this you'll see that it's a conglomeration of standard LDAP attributes, some eduPerson attributes and a custom berkeleyEdu class of attributes. It's not likely that these will map directly into eDirectory nor ActiveDirectory, because those both use their own unique schema definitions for their own purposes. However, I think it's informative to see how Berkeley's schema has been customized to satisfy several purposes. BTW, thank you to UC Berkeley for publishing such good documentation on this. It's very useful for those that have questions about how the directory works and what can be kept in it.
