When I enter the WRKDOMSVR command and take a 9 next to the server name, I
do see that LDAP job running in the Domino subsystem.

When I enter the 8 option and then SHOW TASKS, I do see LDAP SERVER, but
it says CONTROL TASK, not Listen for....

If this means LDAP is being served, is there a way to verify email

Thank you again,

Yes. The file in the IFS is names.nsf. However, that may be a bit hard
for you to analyze. Your Domino server is not currently set up to export
the names.nsf on a periodic basis so, since your Domino team is opposed to
any change, I don't see that happening any time soon. Now, if you want to
manually go into File, Export Contacts and mess around with that you can.

Funny thing is, your Domino server is probably already set up to serve
ldap and they don't even know it. It's a default on your primary NAB
9=Work server jobs
8=Work console
LDAP Server Listen for connect requests on TCP Port:389
Is it using ldap over SSL or not? If the above says Port:389 it is not
using ssl. 636 is the port for SSL.

Local port range:
Lower value . . . . . . . . 389
8=Display jobs

Ldapsearch -h -s base "cn=*guebard*"
ldap_simple_bind: Inappropriate authentication --- Failed, anonymous
bind not allowed
Ldapsearch -h -s base -D "cn=Rob Berendt,O=DEKKO"
-w PlacePasswordHere "cn=*guebard*"

The -D is used to say the next parameter is the user to bind to the DNS
with. The -w is the password.

Here, we serve up ldap from Domino for use by our printer/scanners to send
scanned documents to. And a bunch of other stuff. How does your printer
scanners do their ldap search? Can you use ldapsearch on that? You may
have to add parameters for a binding name and password. Any google search
for ldapsearch will show you how to do that. I showed an example above.
Windows Active Directory often has email addresses stored in that also.
You could ldapsearch that. Then next year when you migrate to Azure for
active directory you can rewrite it.

Boy am I looking forward to my day off on Monday...
