Re: Multiple domains searchable
I'm using OpenLDAP 2.2.6 with back-bdb.
If I create the alias as:
and then I do:
ldapsearch -a never -b ou=authdomain,dc=xyz,dc=com firstname.lastname@example.org
I get back the expected result, the original (nondereferenced) alias.
However, if I do
ldapsearch -a always -b ou=authdomain,dc=xyz,dc=com email@example.com
I get back no results. I would expect to get back the information from
the dereferenced alias.
