slapd-dnssrv - DNS SRV referral backend to slapd
The DNSSRV backend to slapd(8) 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 "".
The dnssrv backend does not honor all ACL semantics as described in
slapd.access(5). In fact, this backend only implements the search
operation when the manageDSAit control (RFC 3296) 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 read (=r) 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
default slapd configuration file
