slapd-dnssrv - DNS SRV referral backend to slapd
The DNSSRV backend to
serves up referrals based upon SRV resource records held in
the Domain Name System.
This backend is experimental.
The DNSSRV backend has no backend nor database specific options.
It is configured simply by "database dnssrv" followed a suffix
directive, e.g. suffix "".
backend does not honor all ACL semantics as described in
In fact, this backend only implements the
operation when the
control (RFC3296) is used, otherwise for every operation a referral,
whenever appropriate, or an error is returned.
Currently, there is no means to condition the returning of the referral
by means of ACLs; no access control is implemented, except for
access to the returned entries, which is actually provided by the frontend.
Note, however, that the information returned by this backend is collected
through the DNS, so it is public by definition.
