Re: slapd and permissions

Well, i am using OpenLDAP version 2.1.26, now i have even added ".regex" where 
needed. But it still doesn't work :( Users still don't have write access to 
their objects inside "Domains".

Now it looks like this and should be 2.1 and 2.2 compatible :P.
access to dn.regex="ou=Domains,uid=(.*),ou=Drones,dc=unimatrix-one,dc=org"
        by dn="cn=root,dc=unimatrix-one,dc=org" write
        by dn="cn=borgd,dc=unimatrix-one,dc=org" write
        by dn.regex="uid=$1,ou=Drones,dc=unimatrix-one,dc=org" write
        by * read
