I tried to know if the persistent search control (OID
2.16.840.1.1137126.96.36.199) was supported in OpenLDAP. The latests
messages I read were saying "no", as we can see in this discussion:
draft-ietf-ldapext-psearch is not supported in OpenLDAP. This standard has
serious deficiencies anyway making it almost unusable. I know what I'm talking
about since I have to use that with eDirectory in a customer project.
But this blog entry is saying this control was introduced in OpenLDAP
This mentions syncrepl (see RFC 4533) as noted in this blog entry.
The funny thing is that the way SyncRepl is implemented, it uses a
mechanism which is a persistentSearch for the RefreshAndPersist mode.
What kind of deficiencies have you found that make the original PSearch
spec unusable ?
What would be needed to use the same mechanism than in Syncrepl to get
it working ?
