Re: ppolicy: quick "./configure" question

Thanks in advance for any help.
I am trying to get ppolicy working, so I am trying
everything from scratch again (kind of a newbie at all
of this). For the beginning, I am trying to lock down
my ./configure flags.
When building OpenLDAP 2.3.24 to include ppolicy and
get it working with as little headache as possible, do
I need to run configure with ...
./configure ... --enable-overlays=yes
If you would simply read the output of "./configure --help" you'd see:
SLAPD Overlay Options:
--enable-overlays enable all available overlays no|yes|mod
So when you use "--enable-overlays" you get them all, you don't need to
individually enable any others. If you only want a specific overlay,
then you don't need the "--enable-overlays" option.
Secondly, when I write the lines in slapd.conf, do I
need to include the module lines for ppolicy? Or do I
simply need to include the overlay lines?
You only need the module directives if you actually configured with
--enable-modules and selected "mod" as the enable mode for the
particular option. (E.g., --enable-ppolicy=mod) Otherwise, the feature
is statically linked in the slapd binary and no module directive is needed.
