Re: Caching empty results

possible to configure slapd proxycache to cache searches with no
results so slapd returns the client the answer instead asking external
ldap server everytime?
In short, proxycache cannot do that. We designed a totally different, custom approach to the operation you'd like to accomplish, and it can do what you're asking for, but it's a completely different business. Moreover, note that negative caching could be an issue if resulting from a search that returned nothing because performed with insufficient privileges: subsequent operations with adequate privileges would get nothing if the negative response were cached...
