LAB_9.4: incorrect ldif-files (from archive with solutions)

I would like to report of some mistake in LFS216 self-paced course lab 9.4.

It seems that solution files for this lab are not correct (I mean groups.ldif and users.ldif):

  1. In groups.ldif instead of "ou=Group" should be "ou=Groups" (3 occurrences);
  2. In users.ldif instead of "ou=People" should be "ou=Users" (20 occurrences).

Without this changes it is impossible to complete step 3 and 5 in the list.

I think this problems arose because of the turnkey-openldap virtual machine update (maybe the default LDAP sheme changed). Check it, please.

I like this course, but it have some little problems in labs (see this topic too - https://www.linux.com/forums/lfs216-class-forum/application-security-labs, I confirm this problem too). Hope I'll help to get this course better.
