This is OpenLDAP 2.2.14. I'll try .17.

'One target'? I have NO idea what I'm doing here, I'm just wining it
and hope that something work :)

It just dawned on me what you meant with 'one target'. I will DEFINITELY
be using more targets, but I thought I'd start with one for now :)

I'm using back-meta because (apparently, see other tread a month or so
back) it's not possible to do GSSAPI authentications with back-ldap.
Also, from my understanding of the man page(s), back-ldap don't do
FS caching, only memory... ? Also, I see some (very vague) future
improvements which back-ldap probably won't be able to fill..

Eh... My understanding of the manual was that you specify which attributes
to cache/index, number that in the proxyAttrset option THEN you
specify a proxyTemplate with this number...

proxyAttrset            3 locals rcptHosts ldapBaseDN ldapObjectClass ldapRebind ldapUid ldapGid
proxyTemplate           (&(cn=)(objectClass=)) 3 43200
