NAME
       slapd-null - Null backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/openldap/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 pass-
	      word.  The default is "off".

       dosearch	<on/off>
	      If enabled, a single entry will be returned on  all  search  re-
	      quests.  The entry's DN will be the same as the database suffix.
	      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 de-
       scribed in slapd.access(5).
