I'm new to OpenLDAP but through tutorials and documentation I have been able to setup a LDAP Addressbook where users can retrieve email addresses and mobile numbers with their email clients (Thunderbird, Outlook). I was the one who created the entries from scratch with the LDAP Manager.

I want to create a Phone-Book entry for just name and numbers and then pass on the responsibility of keeping the Phone-Book updated to someone else. How can I assign a user read+write privileges so (s)he can be the administrator for the ou=Phone-book section of LDAP?.

My setup is like this:

  • ou=People - email, name, number, address, job title, etc.
  • ou=Phone-book - phone numbers and names
  • ou=Users - LDAP users who login to read the address-book
  • anonymous now allowed
