Due to on-going construction of the Symas OpenLDAP Product Download site, existing customers may open a ticket requesting a download link for their requisite Operating System and architecture. Our Silver version is available to anyone wanting to try our product. To obtain a download link, please email support@symas.com.


The following operational issues were encountered during testing of this release:

  • RedHat/CentOS 5 (Gold/Silver) - Heimdal issues prevent Kerberos realm connectivity.
  • All Linux OS (Gold) - KDC process will not stop when the krbserver service is stopped.
    • To stop the service, search for the KDC (detached) service and kill the process ID manually.
  • Windows (Gold/Silver) - OpenLDAP-slapd service loaded as Manual start.
    • In Services.msc, set OpenLDAP-slapd to run Automatically for service restoration/continuity following a crash/reboot.

Our developers are aware of these issues and are working to implement fixes that will appear in coming releases.
