Comment 4 Zac Dover 2013-08-24 08:49:58 EDT
This section requires a couple of updates. 

Issue #1
  The directory servers currently supported for use with Red Hat 
  Enterprise Virtualization 3.2 are:

Issue #2
Add "OpenLDAP" to this list:
    Active Directory;
    Identity Management (IdM); and
    Red Hat Directory Server 9 (RHDS 9).

Issue #3
Add a link to the OpenLDAP docs to this list:
     Active Directory - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/dd448614.
    Identity Management (IdM) - http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Identity_Management_Guide/index.html
    Red Hat Directory Server (RHDS) - http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Directory_Server/index.html 

Issue #4
Added this:
In OpenLDAP, the memberOf functionality is not called a "plugin". It is called an "overlay" and requires no configuration after installation.

To this:
Configure the memberOf plug-in for RHDS to allow group membership. In particular ensure that the value of the memberofgroupattr attribute of the memberOf plug-in is set to uniqueMember. 

A Note for the Future
An ambitious, future version of the RHEV Installation Guide might include Yair Zaslavsky's report on Juan Hernandez's OpenLDAP setup procedure here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=967327#c4

Updated Revision History [21134-501425].

Moving to POST.
