suffixalias does not work on BDB backends (ITS#2117)
Full_Name: Rick van Rein
Version: 2.1.5 + 2.0.25
OS: MacOS X + FreeBSD
Submission from: (NULL) (220.127.116.11)
I am not certain if this is supposed to be a separate bug report, or that it is
already being worked on.
The suffixalias config that Howard Chu proposed on the openldap-software list
does not work, although it does circuimvent my original problem of a blocked
slapd thread. I reproduced the now-remaining problem on 2.1.5 on MacOS X and
FreeBSD, as well as on 2.0.25 on FreeBSD.
Relevant slapd.conf lines are:
access to * by * write
suffixalias "o=MyDomain,c=nl" "dc=my-domain,dc=com"
It responds with a load of objects when I do
ldapsearch -b 'dc=my-domain,dc=com'
but it does not work with
ldapsearch -b 'o=MyDomain,c=nl'
namely, it reports
# search result
result: 32 No such object
This does not change when MyDomain is spelled in lowercase in config file and/or
Clearly, I'm having a non-standard wish to support both naming schemes, but it
would seem that I make proper use of OpenLDAP features, so I suppose this is a
bug that could use a fix.
