slapd-dnssrv bug with "not present" positive statement
Feedback on the experimental slapd-dnssrv database.
I have a domain which doesn't do much any more, and which has some
default SRV records (globnix.org, if you want to test):
*._tcp SRV 0 0 0 .
*._udp SRV 0 0 0 .
According to RFC 2782 (DNS SRV):
A Target of "." means that the service is decidedly not
available at this domain.
If I elsewhere use slapd with the dnssrv database and issue:
$ ldapsearch -b 'dc=globnix,dc=org' -s base +
then I get:
# search result
result: 10 Referral
text: DNS SRV generated referrals
This looks like insufficient checking of the results before constructing
a response; shouldn't that issue a "no such object"?
