NAME

       slapd-dnssrv - DNS SRV referral backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION

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

       This backend is experimental.

CONFIGURATION

       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

       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.
