SLAPD-NULL(5)                 File Formats Manual                SLAPD-NULL(5)



NAME
       slapd-null - Null backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The Null backend to slapd(8) is surely the most useful part of slapd:
       - Searches return success but no entries.
       - Compares return compareFalse.
       - Updates return success (unless readonly is on) but do nothing.
       - Binds fail unless the database option "bind on" is given.
       Inspired by the /dev/null device.

CONFIGURATION
       This  slapd.conf option applies to the NULL backend database.  That is,
       it must follow a "database null" line and come  before  any  subsequent
       "database"   lines.   Other  database  options  are  described  in  the
       slapd.conf(5) manual page.

       bind <&lt;on/off>&gt;
              Allow binds as DNs in this backend's  suffix.   The  default  is
              "off".

EXAMPLE
       Here is a possible slapd.conf extract using the Null backend:

              database null
              suffix   "cn=Nothing"
              bind     on

FILES
