(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) OpenLDAP Software FAQ : (Category) Configuration : (Category) SLAPD Configuration : (Category) Access Control : (Answer) How do I use the defaultaccess directive?
The defaultaccess directive is deprecated as of OpenLDAP 2.1. Instead, use the access directive.
In the absence of any access, non-rootdn access is granted based upon the value of the defaultaccess directive.

You can change the default access on a global or per-dabase basis using:

    defaultaccess <access>
where <access> normally either read or none.

Note: if any access directive is defined, the default access becomes none.
