SLAPD-DNSSRV(5)		      File Formats Manual	       SLAPD-DNSSRV(5)

NAME
       slapd-dnssrv - DNS SRV referral backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  DNSSRV  backend to slapd(8)	serves up referrals based upon SRV re-
       source 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 op-
       eration when the	manageDSAit control (RFC 3296) is used,	otherwise  for
       every  operation	 a  referral, whenever appropriate, or an error	is re-
       turned.	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.
