Please give us a hint :-) http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin23/
doesn't say anything about cn=config, and I can't convert HEAD to
html as sdf doesn't compile on my system.
I've made a number of updates to the slapdconf2.sdf chapter in the Guide
and refreshed the copy on my web site.
All of the text in chapter 5 is now up to date. (I think. Please point
out any errors/ask questions/etc.)
Some points to note:
slurpd still has not been updated to recognize the new cn=config
format. If you're stuck with slurpd (unable to migrate to syncrepl) then
you will have to manually maintain a slapd.conf file for slurpd to read.
It can of course be stripped down since slurpd just needs to see the
While slapd.conf-style include files are deprecated, we've added
support for the slapd code and slap tools to process LDIF include
directives. I.e., you can use
to insert other LDIF-formatted data into an LDIF stream. This feature is
not yet part of the LDIF RFC, but some discussion about it was on the
LDAPEXT mailing list a couple months ago:
The example in the Admin Guide section 5.4 uses this feature to
reference the core schema definitions.
I just checked, and I see that the ldap* tools have not been updated
with this support because they don't use the same library routines that
the slap* tools use to read LDIF files. (ugh.)
