slapd-dnssrv - DNS SRV referral backend to slapd
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 "".
backend does not honor all ACL semantics as described in
(5). In fact, this backend only implements the
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
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.
