Externalize access to a partial replica
I need to give acces to a partial replica of my ldap directory
this replica only contain "white pages" attributes -> no userpassword !
I created a bind user in the master ldap to give external access to that
but as I don't replicate userpassword, then that bind user doesn't have
usperpasswd in the replicate and then cannot authenticate on it (egg and
chiken pb !)
then how can I have that partial replica whitout userpassword attributes,
but still allow someone (at least one dn, but not the rootdn in
slapd.conf that I want to keep secret)
to bind to that replica !?
I tested a binddn out of ldap database with SASL (digest-md5), but
apparently (ldapsearch -Y) it requires a userpassword attribute for
that binddn in the ldap database :-(
I though that having a password only in /etc/salsdb2 would be enough ...
to bad ;-(
I also tested with a translucent in front of my replica, in that
translucent I added the userpassword for the binddn so that he can bind
, but the search addresed to that translucent that finally goes to my
partial replica ends up in an anonymous bind,
not as that binddn I expected :-( (so ACL cannot be match )
Please let me know how to let a user+password (binddn having
correponding ACL) search my replica on a replica not containing
userpassword attributes (or a least one for that binddn) . would it be
possible to replicate userpassowrd attribute from the master only for
that binddn ?
