NAME

       slapd-null - Null backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The Null backend to slapd(8) is surely the most useful part of slapd:
       - Searches return success but no entries.
       - Compares return compareFalse.
       - Updates return success (unless readonly is on) but do nothing.
       -  Binds other than as the rootdn fail unless the database option "bind
       on" is given.
       - The slapadd(8) and slapcat(8) tools are equally exciting.
       Inspired by the /dev/null device.

CONFIGURATION

       This slapd.conf option applies to the NULL backend database.  That  is,
       it  must  follow  a "database null" line and come before any subsequent
       "database"  lines.   Other  database  options  are  described  in   the
       slapd.conf(5) manual page.

       bind <on/off>
              Allow  binds  as  any  DN  in  this  backend's  suffix, with any
              password.  The default is "off".

EXAMPLE

       Here is a possible slapd.conf extract using the Null backend:

              database null
              suffix   "cn=Nothing"
              bind     on

ACCESS CONTROL

       The null backend does not honor any of  the  access  control  semantics
       described in slapd.access(5).
