NAME

       slapd-passwd - /etc/passwd backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION

       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  the
       entire  passwd  file,  and  are best suited for hosts with small passwd
       files.

CONFIGURATION

       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

       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.
