Re: ACL problem in slapd.conf

Be careful - none of the "by" clauses after the 2nd ("by * read") will be read. The first matching clause wins, and "*" matches everyone.

auth is only meaningful on the userPassword attribute, which you already granted in your first ACL (well, except some implicit searches during bind, but this is a rare case).

Thanks for an explanation - it's now more clear to me how these rules are processed.
