Re: translucent overlay and local objects?

Hi Eugene,

All changes you make to a translucent proxy will be written to the
local database. They are not written upstream. I think you will want
to mess with the chain overlay to produce an affect like that.

I have been able to achieve what you are proposing by creating a
subordinate database for my entirely new objects. The translucent
proxy serves and modifies objects at dc=example,dc=org, and the
subordinate database lives at ou=ext,dc=example,dc=org.
