RE: sql-backend - ldapadd fails

The resolution to this, if anyone else ever gets stuck, is that the
provided sample SQL files do not have enough smarts to actually maintain
the ldap database properly. I think the overal layout/design stinks, but
I at least got it working enough to understand the moving parts. In the
ldap_oc_mappings table, it needs to know how to create additional rows in
the helper tables ('persons', in the case of inetOrgPerson from these
examples), and ldap_attr_mappings is unable to actually stuff the data in
as its add_proc, etc fields are empty. Included are some entries that
work a little better, but require MySQL functions to operate. They can't
really handle multiple updates at once, but it isn't too bad. Changing to
mySQL's auto_increment fields would fix that.

Items you think may be worthy to have added as into OpenLDAP should be submitted via the ITS system where they can be reviewed:


posts to the openldap-software@openldap.org list are generally considered to be simply informational.
