Re: Best way to merge two local DITs vs empty search base suffix

Where is it documented how the conf file slapd.conf file is processed?

I've read the documentation, more than once, and still don't know.  I suspect this whole 'order thing' is pretty darn important (outside of access config).

Seriously, please me at it.

You can do this just fine.  I do it in all my installs.  You simply need to
declare them in the right order.  I.e., you must declare monitor, etc
before the empty suffix.
