Campus LDAPBy: Richard Glaser - Revised: 2006-07-05 devin
There is a LDAP server on campus that you can setup with Address Book, which would give you simpler functionality as web campus staff directory at www.acs.utah.edu/prod/hrbin/campus-directory
. Setting up the Address Book in Mac OS X will allow you to automatically lookup emails for persons in mail other mail clients that support it.
Note, searching the LDAP directory is restricted to campus subnets. So, if you want to use it off-campus you will need to connect to the campus VPN
Add LDAP Configuration
Launch Address Book, open up "Preferences", then select LDAP. Click the "+" to create the "U of U LDAP" configuration.
Enter the following information:
- For "Name" ,University of Utah LDAP or whatever you want to call it.
- For "Server, enter ldap.acs.utah.edu
- For "Search Base", enter o=utah.edu (that is the letter "o" not the number "0")
Searching Campus LDAPAddress Book
Once, the campus LDAP configuration has been setup, you can use Address Book to search it. Open the Address Book, click on the "Directories" in the "Group" column and then enter the person you want to search, for example, I enter "chems" in the search...
In regards, to Apple Mail application, you will need to select "Automatically complete addresses" in the Mail -> Preferences -> Composing pane.
