Re: Problem with Limits in slapd.conf

No one else has replied to this, I'll note a long thread on this issue at:


In summary, it works for me, but not for Alexander, and additional insight into this welcome.

I am using slapd debian package 2.3.24-1 on amd64 etch.

I have tried using the limits command to allow for queries past 500.

when I tried using ldapsearch -x -b "<basedn>" I recieved an error 4
sizelimit when it tried to retrieve record #4.

I wanted to raise the limit but only for certain users so I used

limits dn.exact="cn=Global Address Book
Admin,ou=Roles,dc=samad,dc=com,dc=au" size=1000 limits
dn.subtree="dc=samad,dc=com,dc=au" size=1000
limits users  size=1000

I tried each one seperately and with size.soft size.hard and values of unlimited and 0 and -1

but I kept getting the same error.

Just for testing I tried sizelimits 1000 and it all worked

I have placed these commands after the schema includes, I have tried placing them in the backend section but that raised an error

Thanks Alex
