Maybe I didn't explain it clearly in my previous
emails. The existing server to which I wish to connect
my openldap server is NOT an openldap server.

Hmm, the existing server does use mysql to store the
data, but openldap can't access the database (mysql)
directly. It has to talk through the API provided by
the existing server (again, this is not an openldap
server). So in this case, I don't think back-sql is
the right choice since openldap can't access the mysql
db directly like the way it works with bdb...am I
right ?
And anyway, back-sql is still experimental right ?

What's the advantages and disadvantages of using
back-perl in my case ?
