Hi, please do not direct questions to me personally, unless you wish to

I answer the list when I can spare it. Also, questions and answers may be
of interest to other subscribers; questions raised on the list should be
answered on the list.

Any database that OpenLDAP supports will store any syntax, including binary.
The directory doesn't care what you put into a binary attribute. The issue
how to interpret it is entirely left up to your application.

Both of the above. I already answered this question but perhaps I wasn't
explicit enough. Back-ldbm works with Berkeley DB, GDBM, NDBM, and will
probably work with any other library that supports a DBM-like API. Use
back-sql for Oracle or any other relational database. I personally have not
used back-sql and know very little about it.
