I second that. "Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services" is a VERY
rich text that covers pretty much everything from A-Z. I don't know which edition
is out now, but I have the 2nd edition, and it covers the basics as well as
product-specific stuff. I had also purchased another book, "LDAP Directories
Explained" (Arkills, Addison Wesley), but it was awful in comparison.

| What makes you assume that because a book is 3 years old that it's outdated?
| The LDAP standard hasn't changed since 1997; it's still at version 3.
