I have an openldap server that several applications use for
authenication. What we need to do is when a person is disabled, we
need to disable access for that user for all applications but one
(employeeonline). My first thought was simply to move the disabled
person to a different OU (e.g. ou=eoonly,dc=... instead of
ou=people,dc=...). The problem I am running into is that
employeeonline is windows/vbscript that uses SASL to bind which means
that I cannot just move the user to a different OU as they are always
coming in as sasl-realm OL.NSD.ORG. Does any one have a good trick
for how to do this? So far all I have come up with is:
1. Bind as a admin user and then check the user's password instead of
binding as the user.
2. Figure out someway for vbscript to bind as a different SASL realms.
Use a search based mapping like:
which should (sasl) authenticate the user regardless of which subtree they
exist in, underneath dc=example,dc=net.
