TechTip: Synchronizing Your LDAP Server

If you use your IBM i as an LDAP server, you'll love this tip that provides a simple command to keep that server synchronized.

joe_plutaWritten by Joe Pluta

I love learning new ways to use my i. I've been programming the midrange for over 30 years now, and I'm still learning new capabilities of the platform. For me, the most recent was the capability of the IBM i to act as a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server.

The Cloud Beckons as IBM Announces Its Upcoming Enterprise+ Service

With isolated security and a service level promising 99.9 percent availability, the production-ready cloud may be imminent.

chris_smithWritten by Chris Smith

The demand for cloud services is skyrocketing, and IBM is poised to introduce a service later this year that will allow businesses to dial in the security and service levels businesses have come to expect from on-premise servers.


Part of its IBM SmartCloud offerings, Enterprise+ will offer a core set of multi-tenant services to manage virtual server, storage, network, and security infrastructure components, including managed operational production services. For now, the operating systems offered will be Windows, Linux, and AIX. Whether IBM i will be offered at a later time certainly is a reasonable assumption, although it has not been announced to date.

Partner TechTip: Using Your Data Anywhere Is Easier Than You Think

How do you leverage business information for on-the-spot analysis?

floyd_delmuroWritten by Floyd Del Muro

Need to provide critical business data to executives, managers, and business analysts, but find that the amount of training and supervision required is preventing you from providing a hands-on reporting tool for the business community? Is the thought of another software product to support across the entire network of users just too grand a plan with your limited staff? Need a fully functional, data?retrieving user interface that is as familiar and as easy to use as the Web? Do you have people that need to access data on the road for critical accounts and decisions?
