Re: ldapsearch not returning namingContexts

dn: olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config
olcDatabase: {-1}frontend
olcAccess: {0}to * by dn.exact=gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth manage by * break

this rule only allows root to access rootDSE via local socket, that is
that is, as root: ldapsearch -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -b "" -s base +


thank you - that explains it. i'm left wondering how those acls for frontend and config got there - i don't recall ever explicitly setting them. slapd isn't listening on a local socket, which would render them quite useless, right?

on a related note, regarding the frontend database - reading a bit in the admin guide, my understanding is that the frontend database is the appropriate location for such acls as olcAccess: to dn.base="" by * read - is this correct? i've done this, and the behavior is now as i expect, but just curious about typical practices.
