Re: Bind dn connection

Hi kurt,
Thanks for the reply, and suggestions.

Following up on the same issue, is it possible that I
can have more than one bind dns configured?
Currently in slapd.conf, I have my rootdn as
"cn=Manager, dc=company, dc=com".
Can I add another dn that can be used for
authentication? ex: cn=service1,dc=company,dc=com.
The idea was that for each service if I have a bind
dn, that way users for that service identity can
authenticate based on the service bind dn. I am adding
a service name attribute to each user entry.
On the clients end, I am just using simple LDAP
queries to get data from the server,no updations

Thanking you in advance,
Prachi Sonalkar.
