Hi Dieter,

This depends :-)
But in most cases the overlays are an extension to a specific database

Ok, I have added it to the htb-part:

DN: olcOverlay={0}chain,olcDatabase={1}hdb,cn=config
objectClass: olcChainConfig
objectClass: olcConfig
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
objectClass: top
olcOverlay: {0}chain

overlay chain
chain-uri ldap://foo/
chain-idassert-bind bindmethod=simple
                     binddn="..." credentials="..."
chain-rebind-as-user true
chain-return-error true

My problem is that I can not find the corresponding old-attributes. I
only could set:


So, what have I done wrong?

There is nothing wrong. The chain overlay is derived from back-ldap,
that is, only attributes unknown to back-ldap, are specific to chain
ldapsearch [-Y external -H ldapi:///]-b "cn=subschema" -s base + | grep
-A4 'olcLDAPConfig'
will show the missing attributes. But as man slapo-chain(5) mentions,
an extension of chain- will distinguish from other configuration
parameters. If this applies to cn=config related attributes I don't
know, as I don't have a chained replication setup. Others may answer
to this.

Under the covers, the chain overlay creates a private back-ldap instance. For dynamically adding with cn=config, you have to create this instance yourself. See the later section of test022-ppolicy in the test suite for an example of how this is done.
