I’m trying to set up back-sql on Ubuntu using openldap version 2.4.39 that uses slapd.d as its configuration store.
All of the config examples I can find online use slapd.conf. A 2011 email from this mailing list explains that it simply is not possible to use the slapd.d config method to specify a dbname. Is that still the case ?
I am trying to add an entry for my mysql database using ldapadd and the following ldif…
# order value not present so entry will be appended
# to current children
The response I get is…
adding new entry "olcDatabase=sql,cn=config"
ldap_add: Undefined attribute type (17)
additional info: dbName: attribute type undefined
I tried dbname (no capital N) as well, but I get the same result.
As you may be able to tell, I have a very loose grip on what to do here ! I’d appreciate some guidance. I am confident that I have odbc and the database/user set up as it describes in the manual section on back-sql. My database connection is called “ldap” in odbc.ini.
Description = ODBC for MySQL
Driver = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libmyodbc.so
Setup = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libodbcmyS.so
FileUsage = 1
Description = MySQL connection to 'test' database
Driver = mysql
Database = ldap
UserName = ldap
Password = ldap
Server = localhost
Port = 3306
Socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
If I need to go back to using slapd.conf, how can I generate one from my slapd.d setup ?
