    Some friends and me are making a project about LDAP so we had to study some resources...So you can have a look on them:
    Understanding LDAP

    LDAP Implementation Cookbook

    These two resources are very good to understand LDAP. They are written by some guys from IBM...

    A little update to my post reported by Viper_SB, Fivesight does no longer distribute a windows version of OpenLDAP, but Lucas Bergman from Fivesight has taken the task of keeping up the port, you can find more details at his site, at the time of this post he has an v2.1.29 for windows.

    Remember it's important to index your server.

    Index Types:
    index default eq
    index cn eq,sub
    index sn eq,sub,approx
    index uidNumber

    The above directives configure the types of indexing to be performed on the listed attributes. The very first directive says that the default type of indexing to use, if none is specified, is eq. So, for the uidNumber entry, it will be indexed eq.

    Type types of possible indexing are:
    pres, eq, approx, sub, none

    "pres" indexing allows you to use filters that ask if the attribute is present in an entry (cn=*).

    "eq" indexing allows you to use filters to ask if an attribute has an exact value ("gn=quanah"). It includes presence, so it is not necessary to index something as pres,eq.

    "approx" indexing allows you to use filters to ask if an attribute value "sounds like" something. This is tied to the --enable-phonetic compile option in OpenLDAP. ("sn~=book") could return book, hook, nook.

    "sub" indexing allows you to use filters that do substring searches on an attribute's values. A filter of ("cn=*mount*") will return all values of cn containing the letters "mount".
    The above quote is taken from ITSS Stanford University
