ldap_cachemgr


NAME
     ldap_cachemgr - LDAP daemon to manage  client  configuration
     for LDAP based Network Information Service lookups

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/lib/ldap/ldap_cachemgr [-l log-file] [-g]


DESCRIPTION
     The ldap_cachemgr daemon is a process that provides  an  up-
     to-date  configuration cache for LDAP naming services. It is
     started during multi-user boot.


     The ldap_cachemgr utility provides caching for  all  parame-
     ters  as  specified  and  used  by  the  LDAP naming service
     clients. The ldap_cachemgr  utility  uses  the  cache  files
     which are originally created by executing the ldapclient(1M)
     utility, as cold start files. Updates  to  the  cache  files
     take place dynamically if profiles are used to configure the
     client. See the init option to ldapclient(1M).


     The ldap_cachemgr utility helps improve the  performance  of
     the  clients that are using LDAP as the Naming service repo-
     sitory. In order for the LDAP naming  services  to  function
     properly,   the   ldap_cachemgr   daemon  must  be  running.
     ldap_cachemgr also improves system security  by  making  the
     configuration files readable by superuser only.


     The cache maintained by this daemon is  shared  by  all  the
     processes that access LDAP Naming information. All processes
     access  this  cache  through  a  door  call.   On   startup,
     ldap_cachemgr  initializes  the  cache from the cache files.
     See  ldapclient(1M).  Thus,  the  cache   survives   machine
     reboots.


     The ldap_cachemgr daemon also acts as its own administration
     tool.  If  an  instance of ldap_cachemgr is already running,
     commands are passed transparently to the running version.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -g

         Print current configuration and statistics  to  standard
         output.  This  is  the  only  option  executable without
         superuser privileges.

     -l log-file

         Cause ldap_cachemgr to use a log  file  other  than  the
         default /var/ldap/cachemgr.log.


EXAMPLES
     Example 1 Stopping and Restarting the ldap_cachemgr Daemon


     The following example shows how to stop and to  restart  the
     ldap_cachemgr daemon.


       example# svcadm disable network/ldap/client
       example# svcadm enable network/ldap/client



     Example 2  Forcing  ldap_cachemgr  to  Reread  Configuration
     Files


     The following example shows how to  force  ldap_cachemgr  to
     reread        the       /var/ldap/ldap_client_file       and
     /var/ldap/ldap_client_cred files


       example# pkill -HUP ldap_cachemgr



FILES
     /var/ldap/cachemgr.log

         Default log file.


     /var/ldap/ldap_client_file
     /var/ldap/ldap_client_cred

         Files containing the LDAP configuration of  the  client.
         These  files are not to be modified manually. Their con-
         tent  is  not  guaranteed  to  be  human  readable.  Use
         ldapclient(1M) to update these files.


WARNINGS
     The ldap_cachemgr utility is included in the current Solaris
     release  on  an  uncommitted  basis  only.  It is subject to
     change or removal in a future minor release.
