Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Developer's Guide

ProcedureTo Bypass the Plug-In

The example suffix contains a number of people. If you look up the entry for one of those people, Barbara Jensen, either anonymously or as Directory Manager, the test_bind() plug-in function is never called. The plug-in therefore never logs informational messages to the errors log.

  1. Run a search that bypasses the plug-in.

    $ ldapsearch -h localhost -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com uid=bjensen sn 
    version: 1
    dn: uid=bjensen, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
    sn: Jensen
    $ grep test_bind /local/ds/logs/errors

    Notice that the server bypasses preoperation bind plug-ins when special users request a bind.
