LDAP not necessary
what happened to the LDAP authentication in OX?
Can you explain why it has changed to something else?
Well, at the moment I'm preparing a little VM to play a bit with Hyperion ;-)
There is no LDAP in Hyperion. At the moment all user data is stored in the database. This does not mean that this will always be the case but at the moment it is.
good to know.
In our case we wanted to migrate all the config stuff to LDAP because of OX User authentication. But now we have to investigate again all that.
As René wrote - for the moment no LDAP is supported, but this will change in the future. Keep in mind that the current release of Hyperion is not a "concreted" release. The CVS will be updated regularly.
I never liked the situation to have two different databases to store these informations. So these are greate news to me, that i do not have to deal with redundent data any more. It should all be done in one place.
Yes, you're right but with LDAP you have some benefits like a hierarchy concept of user permissions which is easy to setup.
Yes, and many large companies have modelled their structure and saved their employees' data in directories like LDAP. So, this will be available some day but Hyperion is not that far yet.

I was pleased to see at first that OX now uses mysql, but now I miss LDAP, coz I had integrated OX 0.8.2 with serveral others project, like a jabberserver, and samba. I googled around and I can see that samba could authenticate against mysql. but it use another table structure then what OX6 do, so that could be a challange. About my jabberserver, i dont know, I guess I must store the user information in two places [mysql for OX, and embedded db for jabber]

Same problem here.
We actually setup an Samba PDC with LDAP for Central User Authentification based on the OX 0.8.2 LDAP tree.
So OX6 Looks really nice, but without LDAP Support we couldn't upgrade or Migrate to OX6. So Please build in the LDAP support ASAP.
Perhaps you could finde your own way to connect ldap with mysql and contribute your solution
