NAME         top

       slapd-dnssrv - DNS SRV referral backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS         top


DESCRIPTION         top

       The DNSSRV backend to slapd(8) serves up referrals based upon SRV
       resource records held in the Domain Name System.

       This backend is experimental.


       The DNSSRV backend has no backend nor database specific options.  It
       is configured simply by "database dnssrv" followed a suffix
       directive, e.g. suffix "".

ACCESS CONTROL         top

       The dnssrv backend does not honor all ACL semantics as described in
       slapd.access(5).  In fact, this backend only implements the search
       operation when the manageDSAit control (RFC 3296) is used, otherwise
       for every operation a referral, whenever appropriate, or an error is
       returned.  Currently, there is no means to condition the returning of
       the referral by means of ACLs; no access control is implemented,
       except for read (=r) access to the returned entries, which is
       actually provided by the frontend.  Note, however, that the
       information returned by this backend is collected through the DNS, so
       it is public by definition.
