In our enterprise, we have a large number of Oracle databases and (obviously) large number of users with access to different databases. We would like to ease the procedure to create/drop/modify users on an enterprise level. A LDAP solution comes to mind but the solutions from Oracle Corp are too expensive. Needless to say, my mgmt asked me to research and come up with an alternative. I read about OpenLDAP. My questions:
- How do I setup OpenLDAP for oracle user security authentication ?
- Can I use OpenLDAP as a standalone or does it have to be integrated with any Oracle product like OID, OVD, ODSEE etc?
- Are there are any certified install procedures for setting up OpenLDAP w/ Oracle database?
I didn't find anything on the internet for setting up OpenLDAP. Any help/pointer would be appreciated. The goal is to avoid any products from Oracle Corp purely for cost reasons.
