Re: ACL Assistance Requested


Thank you! That worked great (dn.subtree). I had thought I had fixed it but the state data in my client application had not refreshed properly.

adding new entry "cn=<printer IP>,ou=printers,dc=example,dc=org"
ldap_add: Insufficient access (50)

See man slapd.access: The add operation requires write (=w) privileges on the pseudo- attribute entry of the entry being added, and write (=w) privileges on the pseudo-attribute children of the entry's parent. When adding the suffix entry of a database, write access to children of the empty DN ("") is required.

Your statement
  access to dn="ou=printers,dc=example,dc=org"
     by dn.exact="uid=cupsd,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org" write

grants write access to the "children" pseudo-attribute of the parent (as
well as to the rest of the parent).  To to grant access to the actual
entries you add, use dn.subtree= instead of dn=.  Or maybe another
access statement with something more restrictive, i.e. with dn.children.
