I'm using smbldap tools on an Ubuntu Hardy infrastructure, and I'd like to be able to provide a web front-end for non-technical users to manipulate users and group membership. Does such a beast exist?

I'm afraid you're not going to find many tools in the Open Source world for "less technical" users managing smbldap/openldap directories short of writing one yourself. Our consulting business used/recommended:

  • phpldapadmin
  • jxplorer

Both of which are "ldap-y" in that they use DNs etc. If you don't want userid management folks to see that or have to deal with it, then you'll probably need to write your own tool.

I did a quick Google search this looked promising.

Might be of some help.

Given this is for non-technical users, I don't think an interface which exposes DN suffixes and the like is really appropriate. – Jon Topper Jul 8 '09 at 17:21

Have you ever looked into webmin? Webmin has to my knowledge modules for samba and for ldap. Maybe it does what you need to do.
