Full Description

slapd, with Samba schema

Based on, and many thanks to,

A basic configuration of the OpenLDAP server, slapd, with support for data
volumes, and Samba schema applied.

This image will initialize a basic configuration of slapd. Most common schemas
are preloaded (all the schemas that come preloaded with the default Ubuntu
Precise install of slapd), as well as the aforementioned Samba schema, but the
only record added to the directory will be the root organisational unit.

You can (and should) configure the following by providing environment variables
to docker run:

  • LDAP_DOMAIN sets the LDAP root domain. (e.g. if you provide
    here, the root of your directory will be dc=foo,dc=bar,dc=com)
  • LDAP_ORGANISATION sets the human-readable name for your organisation (e.g.
    Acme Widgets Inc.)
  • LDAP_ROOTPASS sets the LDAP admin user password (i.e. the password for
    cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com if your domain was

For example, to start a container running slapd for the domain,
with data stored in /data/ldap on the host, use the following:

    docker run -p 389:389
               -v /data/ldap:/var/lib/ldap \
               -e \
               -e LDAP_ORGANISATION="My Mega Corporation" \
               -e LDAP_ROOTPASS=s3cr3tpassw0rd \
               -d shauns/docker-slapd-samba

The example above will expose LDAP over the standard port 389 (through the
-p option), but if you chose to omit it you can find out which port the
LDAP server is bound to on the host by running docker ps (or
docker port <container_id> 389). You could then load an LDIF
file (to set up your directory) like so:

ldapadd -h localhost -p <host_port> -c -x -D cn=admin,dc=mycorp,dc=com -W -f data.ldif

NB: Please be aware that by default docker will make the LDAP port
accessible from anywhere if the host firewall is unconfigured.
