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



NAME
       slapd-passwd - /etc/passwd backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  PASSWD  backend to slapd(8) serves up the user account information
       listed in the system passwd(5) file.   This  backend  is  provided  for
       demonstration  purposes  only.   The  DN  of  each entry is "uid=<user-
       name>,<suffix>".  Note that  non-base  searches  scan  the  the  entire
       passwd file, and are best suited for hosts with small passwd files.

CONFIGURATION
       This  slapd.conf  option  applies to the PASSWD backend database.  That
       is, it must follow a "database passwd" line and come before any  subse-
       quent  "backend"  or  "database"  lines.   Other  database  options are
       described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page.

       file <&lt;filename>&gt;
              Specifies an alternate passwd  file  to  use.   The  default  is
              /etc/passwd.

              default slapd configuration file
