As I mentioned here
the LDAP admin guide is very good, but I think that the intros to chapters 5
(configuring slapd via slapd-config) and chapter 6 (configuring slapd via
slapd.conf) needed a bit of updating. Specifically
- it's not very explicit that slapd-config is now preferred and slapd.conf
only be used as a last resort.
- the Note that some backends don't support slapd-config was vague enough that
would prevent many people from choosing that route, because they wouldn't
whether a backend they needed would support the new-style config system. By
specifically listing which backends don't support slapd-config, hopefully
more people will be willing to begin with (or convert to) slapd-config.
I also tried to
- make it clear that chapters 5 and 6 were essentially explaining the same
but the slapd-config way is preferred.
- Although slapd-config stores its configuration in text files, they shouldn't
The patch against head has been uploaded. Any and all comments and feedback
