Freeware LDAP server for Windows

For a project i needed a Windows LDAP server (client) software. I try out some commercial and freeware tools. Add the end i like Apache Directory Server the most. So if you are searching for a freeware easy to use LDAP solution for Windows checkout this product.

Apache Directory Server
ApacheDS is an embeddable directory server entirely written in Java, which has been certified LDAPv3 compatible by the Open Group. Besides LDAP it supports Kerberos 5 and the Change Password Protocol. It has been designed to introduce triggers, stored procedures, queues and views to the world of LDAP which has lacked these rich constructs.

Apache Directory Studio
The Studio is an LDAP client platform. It is composed of an Eclipse RCP Application and a set of plugins. Primarily it is built to be used with ApacheDS, but it should work with any LDAP server.

If you miss the “Administration tools” menu in Windows XP. How can i access these tools without this menu?

All the tools in the Administrative tools folder point to Management Console files. Do a search on your Windows system for c:\windows\system32\*.msc and you’ll find them. The make a shortcut on the desktop to access them!

Tip: Windows disk manager tool can be start by entering “compmgmt.msc” in the “Run” section!

Could not open `C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_05\lib\i386\jvm.cfg’

I am geting this error when I enter the “java” command: “Error: could not open `C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_05\lib\i386\jvm.cfg'”

I have configured the PATH variable (Windows XP) and “javac” works. I cannot, however, get my programs to run because of the error every time I type “java”. Also, I did not install my JDK / SDK to the directory in which the computer is looking for the “java” cammand (ie. it is not in ‘Program Files’…). If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Delete the “java.exe” file from “c:\windows” and “c:\windows\system32”. That should fix it.
