The refint overlay doesn't necessarily work correctly without a rootdn being set
on the database it is applying to.  This requirement should be documented in the
man page.

See:

I'd argue that slapd should not even start if such a strong requirement of an
overlay is not met by configuration.

Ciao, Michael.

This may be related.

I've veryfied that my refint overlay is not working.
However I have a rootdn defined for the database, but it is set to 
cn=config.
Could it be that the rootdn has to be in the scope of the database for 
refint to work?

slapd 2.4.20, back-hdb, BerkeleyDB 4.8.24

Fixed in the manpage, but not in the admin guide.

Leaving that for Howard, but I don't think we can do that now.
cn=3Dconfig should then also refuse to delete rootdn, otherwise we'd ha=
ve
the worse behavior that slapd won't start after a cn=3Dconfig update.

I don't think so.  Hopefully it was ITS#6663 or ITS#6730, now fixed.
