How-To: Configure ModusGate with Sun One Open Directory for Sun Email Servers

 

Product: ModusGate

Version & Build: All

 

 

Available in ModusGate is the option to use OpenLDAP for mailbox validation and authentication.  OpenLDAP servers can use different attributes for mailbox and alias identification.  As such, ModusGate needs to know which attributes to query to validate mailboxes and aliases.  ModusGate supports all attributes of OpenLDAP.

 

You can create several OpenLDAP routes in ModusGate using different LDAP mail and alias attributes types.  To facilitate the process, Vircom has created this ready-made route type for SunOne = iPlanet LDAP servers by using "mailalternateaddress" for aliases (instead of the default “uid” attribute) and by including the domain name in the alias request.  Other OpenLDAP attributes can be easily configured for different flavirs of OpenLDAP servers.

 

 

Sun One (formerly iPlanet)

 

Attached to this article are two Windows Registry branches that you can import for Sun One Open Directory.  The contents are as follows

 

OpenLDAP.reg

  • Creates the standard OpenLDAP type found in the original ModusGate installation (Connections – Properties – General)
  • The content of this Registry file is:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Vircom\VopMail\LDAPServers\1]

@=""

"Alias_AttributeName"="uid"

"AliasedObject_AttributeName"="aliasedObjectName"

"AliasedObject_UIDTag"="uid"

"Mailbox_AttributeName"="mail"

"Name"="OpenLDAP"

"StripDomainFromAliasQuery"=dword:00000001

 

 

SunOne.reg

  • Adds a second OpenLDAP type to the list of validation/authentication processes in ModusGate (Connections – Properties – General)
  • The content of this Registry file is:

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Vircom\VopMail\LDAPServers\2]

@=""

"Alias_AttributeName"="mailalternateaddress"

"AliasedObject_AttributeName"="aliasedObjectName"

"AliasedObject_UIDTag"="uid"

"Mailbox_AttributeName"="mail"

"Name"="SunOneLDAP"

"StripDomainFromAliasQuery"=dword:00000000

 

 

Installation Procedures:

  • You must have Administrator rights to the ModusGate server to proceed
  • Make sure that the ModusGate Console is closed
  • Double-click on each of the two Registry files to import the keys
  • Open the Console and go to Connections – Properties – General
  • At Authentication Requests, use the pull-down menu to select SunOneLDAP
  • Go to System – Properties – Services and stop and start the following:
    • SMTPRS
    • MODUSCAN
    • MODUSADM
  • Send a test message to a mailbox alias on the Sun One Open LDAP server

 

This solution is easy to install and manage and provides the option to add extra OpenLDAP types when necessary.
