Re: Possible ppolicy override for other than rootDN


It's too hard to configure AD sync in OpenLDAP

Is any other third Party tool available in market?

If it's not already implemented I'd recommend this feature request:
1. limit such a write operation to a user which has 'manage' access to the
attributes and
2. enable overriding only if the client sends Relax Rules Control along with
the LDAP write request.
