"static" dbuser and dbpassword in back-sql ?
As I understand from man slapd-sql, the RDBMs username and password
must be explicitely be specified in slapd.conf or odbc.ini.
Therefore these credentials are static. i.e, regardless of who
connects to the LDAP Server, it's always the same user/password
combination that is passed to the RDBMs via ODBC.
First question: did I get this right, or did I miss something important?
For use in some kind of "virtual directory" it seems to be
a nice feature, if username an password to be passed to the
RDBMs could be derived from Bind-DN and password that were
originally passed to the LDAP Server.
Second and third question (only valid if I was right with my
guess in qustion #1):
Are there good reasons why these credentials should be static?
How do other virual/metadirectory products handle this?
