    OpenLDAP as virtual Directory


    Hi,

    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,

    Gilles.

    Meta


    If is not too late I solved the same problem last week

    You can use the meta backend

    database meta
    suffix "dc=suffix,dc=sample"
    uri "ldap://10.12.141.153/dc=suffix,dc=sample"
    rootdn "cn=admin,dc=suffix,dc=sample"
    rootpw secret
    idassert-bind bindmethod=simple
    binddn="cn=User,ou=Users,dc=suffix,dc=sample"
    credentials=secret
    flags=override


    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.

    Regards,
