LDAP Proxy resolution by rewriting in meta-backend
I'm new to OpenLDAP, and I would like to know if someone can clarify
me how the LDAP Proxy resolution works in the meta and ldap backends. As
you can read in the slapd-meta man page, this can be used to initiate
operations in remote hosts,by using the rewriteRules, but I've tried to
use it and it doesn't work for me, so I supposse I'm not configuring it
properly, or I'm not understanding how it really works.
I've the following configuration (in slapd.conf) for the meta backend:
rewriteRule '.*' 'ldap://localhost:40389/%0' '@'
And then I do the following search:
ldapsearch -H ldap://localhost:20389 -x -b "o=company" SearchOn="yes"
As far as I understand, this should go to the target specified in
the configuration file, and there the rewiting rules should apply, so
the operation must be redirected to ldap://localhost:40389. Is it that
way?, or am I missing something?, the thing is that it's not working as
I expect, and the query is received by the server
ldap://localhost:30839... so it seems the rewriting rules are being ignored.
Any help about this would be really appreciated. Thank you very much.
