SLAPD-PASSWD(5)              File Formats Manual             SLAPD-PASSWD(5)

NAME         top

       slapd-passwd - /etc/passwd backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS         top

       ETCDIR/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION         top

       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=<username>,<suffix>".  Note that non-base searches scan the
       entire passwd file, and are best suited for hosts with small passwd
       files.

CONFIGURATION         top

       This slapd.conf option applies to the PASSWD backend database.  That
       is, it must follow a "database passwd" line and come before any
       subsequent "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         top

       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.
