Re: [Rivendell] idassert-bind not working as expected?
First, thank you for the response. I will re-test with the current stable
FYI, we chose the slapd-meta backend to allow for redundancy and work with
multiple remote servers (I had read in the man page "the ldap backend is
intended to proxy operations directed to a single server").
Would you have a sample configuration file for the working situtation? I
never see a "simple authentication" bind go out from the OpenLDAP meta server,
so something is definitely wrong on that end (either configuration or bug).
best to you,
