I have been using Luma on Linux to create and manage LDAP user accounts. I've now a macbook pro, and am looking for an equivalent program for Macosx - something that will automatically and correctly generate new uidNumber and gidNumber attributes when creating a new inetOrgPerson.

Any ideas?

There are several tools. You might want to check out:

Apache Directory Server/Studio - an LDAP browser and directory client for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows, and as a plug-in for the Eclipse development environment.

JXplorer - A Java-based browser that runs in any operating environment.

LDAP Account Manager - A PHP based webfrontend for managing various account types in an LDAP directory.

phpLDAPadmin - A web-based LDAP administration tool for creating and editing LDAP entries in any LDAP server.

I have had the most luck with phpLDAPadmin. Its the easiest to use but requires some time to setup. It all depends how in depth your needs are.

I love Apache Directory Studio, however, I have not found a way to make it automatically increment uidNumber and gidNumber when creating a new inetOrgPerson object. So that's something OP should keep in mind. – daff Oct 12 '11 at 20:58
Yes, Apache Directory Studios is by far my favorite of those mentioned, however there does seem to be no auto-increment function, so I'm going with phpLDAPadmin for now. – Frank Brenner Oct 26 '11 at 10:36
