Write to Server

Filed under: Geekiness — iain @ 18:46:08

This doesn’t really warrant a full post in the Macs at home series but it is quite fantastic. I discovered it on my semi-regular trawl through Mac blogs.

Basically you open Directory Access.app, configure your LDAP server and – under Search & Mappings, click Write to Server. You’re asked for a Name, Password and Search Base. The name is the DN of a user with write access to the search base on your server. The operation writes a base64-encoded XML plist, shockingly similar to the DSLDAPv3PlugInConfig.plist we’ve seen before, to the directory.

Then when you come to configure the next Mac, instead of faffing about setting up the attribute mappings manually you just select From Server.
