slapd-ldap meta backend and flat ldap migration
I'm migrating a poorly configured LDAP (flat with no ou's) to one that
has structure. My problem is that several of the applications that use
the LDAP can't handle users/groups in ou's. I need an temporary
solution so that I can go ahead with migrating the LDAP, without having
to wait for the vendors to fix their clients. I've been playing around
with slapd-ldap but can't figure out how to do the following.
Here is my structure
When the user "jdoe" logs on the application tries the following
>SRCH base="o=company,c=us" scope=1 filter="(uid=jdoe)"
User jdoe can be in any of the ou's. So here are some questions
1. Is there a way to change the search scope with slapd-ldap?
2. Can I change the base depending on the filter?
3. Can I use slapd-ldap to completely flatten the ldap?
