slapd-passwd (5oldap)

Name

slapd-passwd - /etc/passwd backend to slapd

Synopsis

/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

Description

SLAPD-PASSWD(5oldap)                                      SLAPD-PASSWD(5oldap)



NAME
       slapd-passwd - /etc/passwd backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  PASSWD  backend to slapd(8) serves up the user account information
       listed in the system passwd(5) file.   This  backend  is  provided  for
       demonstration  purposes  only.   The  DN  of  each entry is "uid=<user-
       name>,<suffix>".  Note that non-base searches scan  the  entire  passwd
       file, and are best suited for hosts with small passwd files.

CONFIGURATION
       This  slapd.conf  option  applies to the PASSWD backend database.  That
       is, it must follow a "database passwd" line and come before any  subse-
       quent  "backend"  or  "database"  lines.   Other  database  options are
       described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page.

       file <filename>
              Specifies an alternate passwd  file  to  use.   The  default  is
              /etc/passwd.

ACCESS CONTROL
       The  passwd  backend does not honor any of the access control semantics
       described in slapd.access(5).  Only  read  (=r)  access  to  the  entry
       pseudo-attribute  and  to  the  other  attribute  values of the entries
       returned by the search operation is honored, which is performed by  the
       frontend.
