I currently work in Paris, always around Open Source software, particularly integrating and optimising tools for enterprise customers. My professional interests revolve around Open Source, including directories, server- and networking-tools.

While I am a system administrator by profession, I feel little can be achieved without some programming, which is why I mix technical experience from both fields.

comment Incremental RPM package version “numbers” for x.y.z > x.y.z-beta (or alpha, rc, etc)
Well, alpha/beta versions are also released... just not as a "Final" version. And I don't really have any choice about that, I just want to have the packaging follow :/

Thanks, I will look into these. At first glance, it seems that they are "hi-jacking" the Release component to allow for upstream alpha/beta/etc versions, which I find a bit cumbersome... IMO, Release should be incremented for packging changes, not for changes in the packaged software.

comment Is there a way to prevent password expiration when user has no password?
@eric-dannielou, some workarounds for that: 1) You could set up several slave LDAP servers, that contain a full copy of the LDAP/AD servers content, and point your unices to them (the LDAP libraries all accept a list of LDAP servers, and fallback if the first doesn't respond, etc) thus avoiding the SPOF or 2) Run a tiny OpenLDAP server on each host that uses the proxycache overlay, which can proxy recently used data, including successful binds, making your machines effectively independent of the LDAP/AD servers, so long as the user logged in previously. The memory footprint is tiny.

comment How do I update the memberOf attributes of existing objects after adding the OpenLDAP Reverse Group Membership Maintenance overlay?
slapindex won't add these missing attributes. The reason is simple: slapindex rebuilds the indexes of the underlying BerkeleyDB database to enable search requests to be handled, and what is needed here is actual data to be added in to the OpenLDAP database (the memberOf attributes and their values).
