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.
