translucent overlay with local-only entries
I'm trying to extend an ldap directory using the translucent overlay,
like many before me:
Before version 2.4.8, this wasn't possible. Howard Chu seems to have
fixed this in rev 1.40 (before release 2.4.8) of translucent.c:
Although it seems to have been fixed, I cannot get it to work on my
setup. I use the packaged v2.4.10 in Debian testing. My config:
# Config start
# Config end
This works perfectly fine for searches where the entry is remote.
Changing entries works fine well, with the results stored in the local
translucent db. Adding new entries works, but they are not returned on
searches. I check this by running slapcat.
So, it boils down to these questions:
* Does Howard's patch not fully implement the searching?
* Is my config wrong?
* There is probably other ways to do this, perhaps using a meta
ldap backend. With multiple backends, what determines where writes
go? Probably where the object is based, but what about new objects?
* Is it cleaner to keep my "branch" of the tree under a subdomain,
such as mybranch.example.com using rwm, or should they all be on the
main example.com domain?
* Examples for exotic overlays are very scarce. It would be very
helpful if anyone could provide their configuration file.
