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.
