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

NAME
       slapd-passwd - /etc/passwd backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/openldap/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=<user-
       name>,<suffix>".	 Note that non-base searches scan  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	subse-
       quent  "backend"	 or  "database"	lines.	Other database options are de-
       scribed 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 re-
       turned by the search operation is honored, which	is  performed  by  the
       frontend.

FILES
