Submission from: (NULL) (

the use of the suffixAlias directive, at least as I intend it, requires to
the aliasing suffix also as an extra database suffix, otherwise the
routine won't be able to select the proper backend based on an aliased dn or
base. But the code in servers/slapd/config.c for suffixAlias input requires the
suffixAlias entry to precede the aliasing suffix definition, otherwise the
latter is
nearly silently ignored. The patch I submitted fixes this bug; in my opinion,
code could be made cleaner, as I explained in a message I posted to the software

mailing list.
