Re: openldap and communicator roaming access
You're right. I added that rule for replication and it went back to not
requiring a password for roaming. If I leave that one out, it requires
a password again. In any case, it was this rule that forced the
password to be valid:
access to dn=".*,ou=roaming,o=city.bloomington.in.us"
by dnattr=owner write
by * none
There definitely could be a better way to do it. I just switched from
Netscape Directory Server to OpenLDAP and still don't fully understand
the security model.
