BUCS runs a cluster of LDAP servers containing directory information about people and things.

It is currently only available from within the firewall, although at some stage a secure, authenticated service will be made available outside the firewall.

The servers are load balanced by the Cisco routers into two groups:

  • ldap.bath.ac.uk - for general use
  • ldap-write.bath.ac.uk - for use when writing to the LDAP

The directory root is o=bath.ac.uk within which different areas hold different types of information. The most significant are:

Location

Stores

ou=people

People and their roles, used by many systems including Person Finder

ou=units

Organisation Units forming the University hierarchy

ou=groups

Auto-generated and manually-maintained groups

ou=contacts

Central contact point information, used by Phone Finder and certain other systems
