OpenLDAP as virtual Directory
My name's Gilles, a french programmer. I'm in intership for 6 months and I have to work on LDAP.
Recently, my work is to search and learn LDAP and virtual directory (penrose and myVD).
I need to know if it's possible to build a Virtual Directory directly with OpenLDAP. I saw some discussion where people was pretty sure that was possible.
If it's possible, can you give me some help/documentation/advice about this.
Thanks a lot,

If is not too late I solved the same problem last week
You can use the meta backend
The important think is the flags=override, it allows you to authenticate in the OpenLDAP and connect with the binddn in the remote (proxy). You will also need to use the old slapd.conf style with the OpenLDAP 2.4+, the backend meta is not supported with the new config.
