Before installation of the NIS/LDAP Gateway, you must have a valid license key. You may request an evaluation license key by sending electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notification of Evaluation License
You will receive a 30 day evaluation license for the NIS/LDAP Gateway via electronic mail within 24 hours of submission. Please contact email@example.com if you have questions regarding the licensing procedure.
The Solaris version of the software asks for the license during installation. You should have ready a 30-day trial evaluation license key, or a permanent license key that was supplied upon purchase of the software. A license configuration file is installed in /opt/ypldapd/etc/padlock.ldif. The license key should be entered without any line breaks or spaces. You must provide your machine's hostid when requesting a permanent license key.
Installation (Other platforms)
Download ypldapd_linux_installer.sh and copy it into /opt/ypldapd. This installation script will guide you through the installation and licensing procedure. Or, you can install the NIS/LDAP Gateway manually by extracting the distribution into /opt/ypldapd and copying the supplied license file to /opt/ypldapd/etc/padlock.ldif. You must provide your machine's hostid and IP address when requesting a permanent license key.
If you are entering the license key in response to a question asked by our installation script, you should enter the right hand side of the padlockKey attribute (in this example, the text starting with 3q+6...), right up to the end of the next line (in this example, the line ending with NXPDW), as a single line without any spaces.
Alternatively, if you are creating the license file manually, you can paste the entire license key that you have received from PADL into /opt/ypldapd/etc/padlock.ldif. Extraneous attributes are ignored by the license file parser; the padlockType and padlockKey attributes are mandatory. The license key in the example above has been edited due to space restrictions.
