Re: reference to other entry - question

Is there any way to do something like this without copying all data many

1) there is entry: uid=user1,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=x
The entry has objectClass = person, posixAccount etc.. So there is
attribute userPassword.

2) there are entries:

I think your design is a bit strange. Why not have these mail attributes as part of the user entry like:

mail: ghenry@suretec.org
mail: ghenry@suretecsystems.com

And then do your search. You then only need one userPassword.
Answer is quite simple. I need to have different aliases and virtual accounts for different virtual domains. So basically I need to split domains and add email accounts respectively to them.

however I had to copy some attributes from
uid=user1,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=x like userPassword (with objectClass') to
every entry @dom1,@dom2,@dom3 to be able to authenticate such user.

Now I'm wondering if there is any way to NOT copy attribute userPassword
(and others) to @dom1.... but rather "create" reference to
uid=user1,ou=people,dc=xx,dc=x in every @domX so when ldapsearch is
performed I will be able to get userPassword using filter
(mail=user1@dom1) and authenticate user1?
