Yes, it is called back-sql. It is useful for presenting Data from an RDBMS to
LDAP clints but shouldn't be used as your primary repository. If you don't need
to present data from non-ldap applications you should use the ldbm backend. I
know some people have an irrational addiction to MySQL and use it for
everything: system authentication, etc... but there is really no advantage;
just slower with way more overhead and potentially serious security implications.
I have a partial back-sql section in my LDAP presentation -
back-sql documentation tends to be rather wanting.
