           The config backend manages all of the configuration information for the
           slapd(8) daemon.  This configuration information is also  used  by  the
           SLAPD tools slapacl(8), slapadd(8), slapauth(8), slapcat(8), slapdn(8),
           slapindex(8), and slaptest(8).
           The config backend is backward compatible with the older  slapd.conf(5)
           file  but  provides the ability to change the configuration dynamically
           at runtime. If slapd is run with only a slapd.conf file dynamic changes
           will  be  allowed  but  they  will not persist across a server restart.
           Dynamic changes are only saved when slapd is  running  from  a  slapd.d
           configuration directory.
           Unlike  other  backends,  there  can only be one instance of the config
           backend, and most of its structure  is  predefined.  The  root  of  the
           database  is hardcoded to cn=config and this root entry contains global
           settings for slapd. Multiple child entries underneath  the  root  entry
           are used to carry various other settings:
                         dynamically loaded modules
                         schema definitions
                         backend-specific settings
                         database-specific settings
           The  cn=Module  entries  will only appear in configurations where slapd
           was built with support for dynamically loaded  modules.  There  can  be
           multiple  entries,  one  for  each  configured module path. Within each
           entry there will be values recorded for each module loaded on  a  given
           path. These entries have no children.
           The cn=Schema entry contains all of the hardcoded schema elements.  The
           children of this entry contain all user-defined  schema  elements.   In
           schema  that  were  loaded  from include files, the child entry will be
           named after the include file from which the schema was  loaded.   Typi-
           cally the first child in this subtree will be cn=core,cn=schema,cn=con-
           olcBackend entries are for storing settings specific to a single  back-
           end  type (and thus global to all database instances of that type).  At
           present there are no backends that implement settings of  this  nature,
           so usually there will not be any olcBackend entries.
           cific values.  In general the names of the LDAP attributes are the same
           as the corresponding slapd.conf keyword, with an "olc" prefix added on.
           The parser for many of these attributes is the same as used for parsing
           the slapd.conf keywords. As such, slapd.conf keywords that allow multi-
           ple items to be specified on one line, separated  by  whitespace,  will
           allow  multiple  items to be specified in one attribute value. However,
           when reading the attribute via LDAP, the  items  will  be  returned  as
           individual attribute values.
           Backend-specific options are discussed in the slapd-<backend>(5) manual
           pages.  Refer to the "OpenLDAP Administrator's Guide" for more  details
           on configuring slapd.


           Options  described  in  this  section  apply  to the server as a whole.
           Arguments that should be replaced by actual text are shown in  brackets
           These  options may only be specified in the cn=config entry. This entry
           must have an objectClass of olcGlobal.
           olcAllows: <features>
                  Specify a set of features  to  allow  (default  none).   bind_v2
                  allows  acceptance  of LDAPv2 bind requests.  Note that slapd(8)
                  does not truly implement LDAPv2 (RFC 1777),  now  Historic  (RFC
                  3494).   bind_anon_cred  allows  anonymous bind when credentials
                  are not empty (e.g.  when DN  is  empty).   bind_anon_dn  allows
                  unauthenticated   (anonymous)   bind   when  DN  is  not  empty.
                  update_anon allows unauthenticated (anonymous) update operations
                  to  be  processed (subject to access controls and other adminis-
                  trative  limits).    proxy_authz_anon   allows   unauthenticated
                  (anonymous) proxy authorization control to be processed (subject
                  to access controls, authorization and other administrative  lim-
           olcArgsFile: <filename>
                  The  (absolute) name of a file that will hold the slapd server's
                  command line (program name and options).
           olcAttributeOptions: <option-name>...
                  Define tagging attribute options or option  tag/range  prefixes.
                  Options  must not end with '-', prefixes must end with '-'.  The
                  'lang-' prefix is predefined.  If you  use  the  olcAttributeOp-
                  tions  directive, 'lang-' will no longer be defined and you must
                  specify it explicitly if you want it defined.
                  An attribute description with a tagging option is a  subtype  of
                  that attribute description without the option.  Except for that,
                  options defined this way have no  special  semantics.   Prefixes
                  defined  this  way  work like the 'lang-' options: They define a
                  Used  by  the  authentication  framework  to convert simple user
                  names to an LDAP DN used for authorization purposes.   Its  pur-
                  pose  is  analogous  to that of olcAuthzRegexp (see below).  The
                  rewrite-rule is a set of rules analogous to those  described  in
                  slapo-rwm(5)  for  data rewriting (after stripping the rwm- pre-
                  fix).  olcAuthIDRewrite and olcAuthzRegexp should not be  inter-
           olcAuthzPolicy: <policy>
                  Used  to  specify  which  rules  to use for Proxy Authorization.
                  Proxy authorization allows  a  client  to  authenticate  to  the
                  server  using  one  user's  credentials, but specify a different
                  identity to use for authorization and access  control  purposes.
                  It  essentially allows user A to login as user B, using user A's
                  password.  The none flag disables proxy authorization.  This  is
                  the  default  setting.   The  from  flag  will  use rules in the
                  authzFrom attribute of the authorization DN.  The to  flag  will
                  use  rules  in  the  authzTo attribute of the authentication DN.
                  The any flag, an alias for the deprecated value  of  both,  will
                  allow  any of the above, whatever succeeds first (checked in to,
                  from sequence.  The all flag  requires  both  authorizations  to
                  The rules are mechanisms to specify which identities are allowed
                  to perform proxy authorization.  The authzFrom attribute  in  an
                  entry  specifies which other users are allowed to proxy login to
                  this entry. The authzTo attribute in an  entry  specifies  which
                  other  users  this  user can authorize as.  Use of authzTo rules
                  can be easily abused if users are  allowed  to  write  arbitrary
                  values to this attribute.  In general the authzTo attribute must
                  be protected with ACLs such that only privileged users can  mod-
                  ify  it.   The value of authzFrom and authzTo describes an iden-
                  tity or a set of identities; it can take five forms:
                  The first form is a valid LDAP URI where the <host>:<port>,  the
                  <attrs>  and  the  <extensions> portions must be absent, so that
                  the search occurs locally on either authzFrom or  authzTo.   The
                  second  form  is  a DN, with the optional style modifiers exact,
                  onelevel, children, and subtree for  exact,  onelevel,  children
                  and  subtree  matches,  which  cause  <pattern> to be normalized
                  according to the DN normalization rules, or  the  special  regex
                  style,  which  causes  the  <pattern>  to  be treated as a POSIX
                  (''extended'') regular  expression,  as  discussed  in  regex(7)
                  and/or re_format(7).  A pattern of * means any non-anonymous DN.
                  security, users are strongly encouraged to  explicitly  set  the
                  type  of identity specification that is being used.  A subset of
                  these rules can be used  as  third  arg  in  the  olcAuthzRegexp
                  statement   (see   below);   significantly,   the  URI  and  the
                  dn.exact:<dn> forms.
           olcAuthzRegexp: <match> <replace>
                  Used by the authentication  framework  to  convert  simple  user
                  names,  such  as  provided by SASL subsystem, to an LDAP DN used
                  for authorization purposes.  Note that the resultant DN need not
                  refer  to  an  existing  entry  to be considered valid.  When an
                  authorization request is received from the SASL  subsystem,  the
                  SASL  USERNAME,  REALM, and MECHANISM are taken, when available,
                  and combined into a name of the form
                  This  name  is   then   compared   against   the   match   POSIX
                  (''extended'')  regular expression, and if the match is success-
                  ful, the name is replaced with the replace string.  If there are
                  wildcard  strings  in  the  match  regular  expression  that are
                  enclosed in parenthesis, e.g.
                  then the portion of the name that matched the wildcard  will  be
                  stored  in  the  numbered  placeholder variable $1. If there are
                  other wildcard strings in parenthesis, the matching strings will
                  be  in  $2, $3, etc. up to $9. The placeholders can then be used
                  in the replace string, e.g.
                  The replaced name can be either a DN, i.e. a string prefixed  by
                  "dn:",  or  an LDAP URI.  If the latter, the server will use the
                  URI to search its own database(s) and,  if  the  search  returns
                  exactly one entry, the name is replaced by the DN of that entry.
                  The LDAP URI must have no hostport, attrs, or extensions  compo-
                  nents, but the filter is mandatory, e.g.
                  The  protocol  portion  of  the URI must be strictly ldap.  Note
                  that this search is subject to access  controls.   Specifically,
                  the  authentication identity must have "auth" access in the sub-
                  Multiple olcAuthzRegexp values can be  specified  to  allow  for
                  multiple  matching  and  replacement patterns. The matching pat-
                  terns are checked in the order they  appear  in  the  attribute,
                  stopping at the first successful match.
           olcConnMaxPendingAuth: <integer>
                  Specify the maximum number of pending requests for an  authenti-
                  cated session.  The default is 1000.
           olcDisallows: <features>
                  Specify a set of features to disallow (default none).  bind_anon
                  disables acceptance of anonymous bind requests.  Note that  this
                  setting  does  not  prohibit  anonymous  directory  access  (See
                  "require authc").  bind_simple disables simple (bind)  authenti-
                  cation.  tls_2_anon disables forcing session to anonymous status
                  (see also tls_authc) upon StartTLS operation receipt.  tls_authc
                  disallows  the  StartTLS  operation  if  authenticated (see also
           olcGentleHUP: { TRUE | FALSE }
                  A SIGHUP signal will only  cause  a  'gentle'  shutdown-attempt:
                  Slapd  will  stop  listening  for  new connections, but will not
                  close the connections to  the  current  clients.   Future  write
                  operations  return  unwilling-to-perform,  though.  Slapd termi-
                  nates when all clients have closed their  connections  (if  they
                  ever  do),  or  -  as  before - if it receives a SIGTERM signal.
                  This can be useful if you wish to terminate the server and start
                  a new slapd server with another database, without disrupting the
                  currently active clients.  The default is FALSE.  You  may  wish
                  to use olcIdleTimeout along with this option.
           olcIdleTimeout: <integer>
                  Specify the number of seconds to wait before forcibly closing an
                  idle client connection.  A setting of 0 disables  this  feature.
                  The  default  is 0. You may also want to set the olcWriteTimeout
           olcIndexIntLen: <integer>
                  Specify the key length for ordered  integer  indices.  The  most
                  significant  bytes  of the binary integer will be used for index
                  keys. The default value is 4, which provides exact indexing  for
                  31 bit values.  A floating point representation is used to index
                  too large values.
           olcIndexSubstrIfMaxlen: <integer>
                  Specify the maximum length for subinitial and subfinal  indices.
                  Only  this  many  characters  of an attribute value will be pro-
                  cessed by the indexing  functions;  any  excess  characters  are
                  ignored. The default is 4.
           olcIndexSubstrIfMinlen: <integer>
                  Specify  the minimum length for subinitial and subfinal indices.
                  An attribute value must have at least this  many  characters  in
                  order  to be processed by the indexing functions. The default is
           olcIndexSubstrAnyLen: <integer>
           Note:  Indexing support depends on the particular backend in use. Also,
           changing these settings will generally  require  deleting  any  indices
           that  depend on these parameters and recreating them with slapindex(8).
           olcListenerThreads: <integer>
                  Specify the number of threads to use for the connection manager.
                  The default is 1 and this is typically adequate for up to 16 CPU
                  cores.  The value should be set to a power of 2.
           olcLocalSSF: <SSF>
                  Specifies the Security Strength Factor (SSF) to be  given  local
                  LDAP  sessions,  such  as those to the ldapi:// listener.  For a
                  description of SSF values, see olcSaslSecProps's  minssf  option
                  description.  The default is 71.
           olcLogFile: <filename>
                  Specify  a  file  for  recording  debug log messages. By default
                  these messages only go to stderr and are not  recorded  anywhere
                  else.  Specifying  a  logfile copies messages to both stderr and
                  the logfile.
           olcLogLevel: <integer> [...]
                  Specify the level at which debugging  statements  and  operation
                  statistics  should  be  syslogged  (currently logged to the sys-
                  logd(8) LOG_LOCAL4 facility).  They must be  considered  subsys-
                  tems rather than increasingly verbose log levels.  Some messages
                  with higher priority are logged  regardless  of  the  configured
                  loglevel  as  soon as any logging is configured.  Log levels are
                  additive, and available levels are:
                          1      (0x1 trace) trace function calls
                          2      (0x2 packets) debug packet handling
                          4      (0x4 args) heavy trace debugging (function args)
                          8      (0x8 conns) connection management
                          16     (0x10 BER) print out packets sent and received
                          32     (0x20 filter) search filter processing
                          64     (0x40 config) configuration file processing

                          512    (0x200 stats2) stats log entries sent

                      olcLogLevel: 0x80 0x1
                      olcLogLevel: acl trace
                  are  equivalent.   The  keyword any can be used as a shortcut to
                  enable logging at all levels (equivalent to  -1).   The  keyword
                  none,  or  the  equivalent  integer representation, causes those
                  messages  that  are  logged   regardless   of   the   configured
                  olcLogLevel  to  be  logged.  In fact, if no olcLogLevel (or a 0
                  level) is defined, no logging occurs, so at least the none level
                  is required to have high priority messages logged.
           olcPasswordCryptSaltFormat: <format>
                  Specify  the format of the salt passed to crypt(3) when generat-
                  ing {CRYPT} passwords (see olcPasswordHash) during processing of
                  LDAP Password Modify Extended Operations (RFC 3062).
                  This string needs to be in sprintf(3) format and may include one
                  (and only one) %s conversion.  This conversion will  be  substi-
                  tuted  with  a  string  of random characters from [A-Za-z0-9./].
                  For example, "%.2s" provides a two character salt and  "$1$%.8s"
                  tells some versions of crypt(3) to use an MD5 algorithm and pro-
                  vides 8 random characters of salt.  The default is  "%s",  which
                  provides 31 characters of salt.
           olcPidFile: <filename>
                  The  (absolute) name of a file that will hold the slapd server's
                  process ID (see getpid(2)).
           olcPluginLogFile: <filename>
                  The ( absolute ) name of a file that will contain  log  messages
                  from SLAPI plugins. See slapd.plugin(5) for details.
           olcReferral: <url>
                  Specify  the  referral  to pass back when slapd(8) cannot find a
                  local database to handle a  request.   If  multiple  values  are
                  specified, each url is provided.
           olcReverseLookup: TRUE | FALSE
                  Enable/disable client name unverified reverse lookup (default is
                  FALSE if compiled with --enable-rlookups).
           olcRootDSE: <file>
                  Specify the name of an  LDIF(5)  file  containing  user  defined
                  attributes  for  the root DSE.  These attributes are returned in
                  addition to the attributes normally produced by slapd.
                  The root DSE is an entry with information about the  server  and
                  its  capabilities,  in operational attributes.  It has the empty
                  DN, and can be read with e.g.:
                      ldapsearch -x -b "" -s base "+"
                  See RFC 4512 section 5.1 for details.
                  Used  to  specify Cyrus SASL security properties.  The none flag
                  (without  any  other  properties)  causes  the  flag  properties
                  default, "noanonymous,noplain", to be cleared.  The noplain flag
                  disables mechanisms susceptible to simple passive attacks.   The
                  noactive flag disables mechanisms susceptible to active attacks.
                  The nodict flag disables mechanisms susceptible to passive  dic-
                  tionary attacks.  The noanonymous flag disables mechanisms which
                  support anonymous login.  The forwardsec  flag  require  forward
                  secrecy between sessions.  The passcred require mechanisms which
                  pass client credentials (and allow  mechanisms  which  can  pass
                  credentials  to  do so).  The minssf=<factor> property specifies
                  the minimum acceptable security strength factor  as  an  integer
                  approximate  to  effective  key  length  used for encryption.  0
                  (zero) implies no protection,  1  implies  integrity  protection
                  only, 56 allows DES or other weak ciphers, 112 allows triple DES
                  and other strong ciphers, 128 allows  RC4,  Blowfish  and  other
                  modern  strong  ciphers.  The default is 0.  The maxssf=<factor>
                  property specifies the maximum acceptable security strength fac-
                  tor  as  an  integer  (see  minssf description).  The default is
                  INT_MAX.  The maxbufsize=<size> property specifies  the  maximum
                  security layer receive buffer size allowed.  0 disables security
                  layers.  The default is 65536.
           olcServerID: <integer> [<URL>]
                  Specify an integer ID from 0 to 4095 for this server (limited to
                  3  hexadecimal  digits).  The ID may also be specified as a hex-
                  adecimal ID by prefixing the value with  "0x".   These  IDs  are
                  required when using multimaster replication and each master must
                  have a unique ID. Note that this  requirement  also  applies  to
                  separate  masters  contributing to a glued set of databases.  If
                  the URL is provided, this directive may  be  specified  multiple
                  times,  providing  a  complete list of participating servers and
                  their IDs. The fully qualified hostname of each server should be
                  used  in the supplied URLs. The IDs are used in the "replica id"
                  field of all CSNs generated by the specified server. The default
                  value is zero.  Example:
                olcServerID: 1 ldap://
                olcServerID: 2 ldap://
           olcSockbufMaxIncoming: <integer>
                  Specify  the  maximum  incoming LDAP PDU size for anonymous ses-
                  sions.  The default is 262143.
           olcSockbufMaxIncomingAuth: <integer>
                  Specify the maximum incoming LDAP  PDU  size  for  authenticated
                  sessions.  The default is 4194303.
           olcTCPBuffer [listener=<URL>] [{read|write}=]<size>
                  Specify  the  size  of  the TCP buffer.  A global value for both
                  read and write TCP buffers related to any listener  is  defined,
                  unless  the listener is explicitly specified, or either the read
                  connection with an outstanding write.  This allows recovery from
                  various network hang conditions.  A setting of 0  disables  this
                  feature.  The default is 0.


           If  slapd is built with support for Transport Layer Security, there are
           more options you can specify.
           olcTLSCipherSuite: <cipher-suite-spec>
                  Permits configuring what ciphers will be accepted and the  pref-
                  erence order.  <cipher-suite-spec> should be a cipher specifica-
                  tion for the TLS library in use  (OpenSSL,  GnuTLS,  or  Mozilla
                  NSS).  Example:
                                 olcTLSCipherSuite: HIGH:MEDIUM:+SSLv2
                                 TLSCiphersuite SECURE256:!AES-128-CBC
                  To check what ciphers a given spec selects in OpenSSL, use:
                       openssl ciphers -v <cipher-suite-spec>
                  With  GnuTLS the available specs can be found in the manual page
                  of gnutls-cli(1) (see the description of the option --priority).
                  In  older  versions of GnuTLS, where gnutls-cli does not support
                  the option --priority, you can obtain the -- more limited --  list
                  of ciphers by calling:
                       gnutls-cli -l
                  When  using Mozilla NSS, the OpenSSL cipher suite specifications
                  are used and translated  into  the  format  used  internally  by
                  Mozilla  NSS.  There isn't an easy way to list the cipher suites
                  from the command line.  The authoritative list is in the  source
                  code for Mozilla NSS in the file sslinfo.c in the structure
                          static const SSLCipherSuiteInfo suiteInfo[]
           olcTLSCACertificateFile: <filename>
                  Specifies  the  file  that  contains certificates for all of the
                  Certificate Authorities that slapd will recognize.
           olcTLSCACertificatePath: <path>
                  Specifies the path of  a  directory  that  contains  Certificate
                  Authority  certificates  in  separate  individual files. Usually
                  only one of this or the olcTLSCACertificateFile is  defined.  If
                  both  are specified, both locations will be used. This directive
                  is not supported when using GnuTLS.
                  When using  Mozilla  NSS,  <path>  may  contain  a  Mozilla  NSS
                  Use certutil -L to list the certificates by name:
                       certutil -d /path/to/certdbdir -L
           olcTLSCertificateKeyFile: <filename>
                  Specifies the file that contains the slapd  server  private  key
                  that matches the certificate stored in the olcTLSCertificateFile
                  file. If the private key is protected with a password, the pass-
                  word  must  be manually typed in when slapd starts.  Usually the
                  private key is not protected with a password, to allow slapd  to
                  start  without  manual intervention, so it is of critical impor-
                  tance that the file is protected carefully.
                  When using Mozilla NSS, olcTLSCertificateKeyFile  specifies  the
                  name  of  a  file that contains the password for the key for the
                  certificate specified with olcTLSCertificateFile.   The  modutil
                  command  can  be  used  to  turn off password protection for the
                  cert/key  database.   For  example,  if  olcTLSCACertificatePath
                  specifes  /etc/openldap/certdb  as  the location of the cert/key
                  database, use modutil  to  change  the  password  to  the  empty
                       modutil -dbdir /etc/openldap/certdb -changepw 'NSS Certificate DB'
                  You  must  have  the  old  password, if any.  Ignore the WARNING
                  about the running browser.  Press 'Enter' for the new  password.
           olcTLSDHParamFile: <filename>
                  This  directive  specifies the file that contains parameters for
                  Diffie-Hellman ephemeral key  exchange.   This  is  required  in
                  order  to  use a DSA certificate on the server. If multiple sets
                  of parameters are present in the file, all of them will be  pro-
                  cessed.  Note that setting this option may also enable Anonymous
                  Diffie-Hellman  key  exchanges  in  certain  non-default  cipher
                  suites.   You  should append "!ADH" to your cipher suites if you
                  have changed them from the  default,  otherwise  no  certificate
                  exchanges  or  verification  will  be done. When using GnuTLS or
                  Mozilla NSS these parameters are always  generated  randomly  so
                  this directive is ignored.
           olcTLSProtocolMin: <major>[.<minor>]
                  Specifies  minimum SSL/TLS protocol version that will be negoti-
                  ated.  If the server doesn't support at least that version,  the
                  SSL handshake will fail.  To require TLS 1.x or higher, set this
                  option to 3.(x+1), e.g.,
                       olcTLSProtocolMin: 3.2
                  would require TLS 1.1.  Specifying a minimum that is higher than
                  that  supported by the OpenLDAP implementation will result in it
                  requiring the highest level that it does support.   This  direc-
                  tive is ignored with GnuTLS.
           olcTLSRandFile: <filename>
                  allow  The client certificate is requested.  If  no  certificate
                         is  provided,  the  session  proceeds normally.  If a bad
                         certificate is provided, it will be ignored and the  ses-
                         sion proceeds normally.
                  try    The  client  certificate is requested.  If no certificate
                         is provided, the session proceeds  normally.   If  a  bad

                  demand | hard | true
                         These keywords are all equivalent, for compatibility rea-
                         sons.   The  client certificate is requested.  If no cer-
                         tificate is provided, or a bad certificate  is  provided,
                         the session is immediately terminated.
                         Note that a valid client certificate is required in order
                         to use the SASL EXTERNAL authentication mechanism with  a
                         TLS  session.   As such, a non-default olcTLSVerifyClient
                         setting must be chosen to enable SASL EXTERNAL  authenti-
           olcTLSCRLCheck: <level>
                  Specifies  if  the  Certificate  Revocation List (CRL) of the CA
                  should be used to verify if the  client  certificates  have  not
                  been revoked. This requires olcTLSCACertificatePath parameter to
                  be set. This parameter is ignored with GnuTLS and  Mozilla  NSS.
                  <level> can be specified as one of the following keywords:
                  none   No CRL checks are performed
                  peer   Check the CRL of the peer certificate
                  all    Check the CRL for a whole certificate chain
           olcTLSCRLFile: <filename>
                  Specifies  a file containing a Certificate Revocation List to be
                  used for verifying that certificates have not been revoked. This
                  parameter is only valid when using GnuTLS or Mozilla NSS.


           If  slapd  is  compiled  with  --enable-modules then the module-related
           entries will be available. These entries are named cn=module{x},cn=con-
           fig  and  must  have the olcModuleList objectClass. One entry should be
           created per olcModulePath.  Normally the config  engine  generates  the
           "{x}"  index  in  the RDN automatically, so it can be omitted when ini-
           tially loading these entries.
           olcModuleLoad: <filename>
                  Specify the name of a dynamically loadable module to  load.  The
                  filename may be an absolute path name or a simple filename. Non-
                  absolute names are searched for in the directories specified  by
           olcAttributetypes:     ( <oid>    [NAME <name>]    [DESC <description>]
                  [OBSOLETE]   [SUP <oid>]    [EQUALITY <oid>]    [ORDERING <oid>]

                  [NO-USER-MODIFICATION] [USAGE <attributeUsage>] )
                  Specify an attribute type using the LDAPv3 syntax defined in RFC
                  4512.   The  slapd  parser  extends  the  RFC 4512 definition by
                  allowing string forms as well as numeric OIDs to be used for the
                  attribute    OID   and   attribute   syntax   OID.    (See   the
                  olcObjectIdentifier description.)
           olcDitContentRules:    ( <oid>    [NAME <name>]    [DESC <description>]
                  [OBSOLETE]      [AUX <oids>]      [MUST <oids>]     [MAY <oids>]
                  [NOT <oids>] )
                  Specify an DIT Content Rule using the LDAPv3 syntax  defined  in
                  RFC  4512.   The slapd parser extends the RFC 4512 definition by
                  allowing string forms as well as numeric OIDs to be used for the
                  attribute    OID   and   attribute   syntax   OID.    (See   the
                  olcObjectIdentifier description.)
           olcObjectClasses: ( <oid> [NAME <name>] [DESC <description>] [OBSOLETE]
                  [SUP <oids>]   [{   ABSTRACT   |   STRUCTURAL   |  AUXILIARY  }]
                  [MUST <oids>] [MAY <oids>] )
                  Specify an objectclass using the LDAPv3 syntax  defined  in  RFC
                  4512.   The  slapd  parser  extends  the  RFC 4512 definition by
                  allowing string forms as well as numeric OIDs to be used for the
                  object  class  OID.   (See the olcObjectIdentifier description.)
                  Object classes are "STRUCTURAL" by default.
           olcObjectIdentifier: <name> { <oid> | <name>[:<suffix>] }
                  Define a string name that equates to the given OID.  The  string
                  can  be  used  in  place  of  the numeric OID in objectclass and
                  attribute definitions. The name can also be used with  a  suffix
                  of the form ":xx" in which case the value "oid.xx" will be used.


           Options in these entries only apply to the configuration  of  a  single
           type  of  backend.  All backends may support this class of options, but
           currently     none     do.      The     entry     must     be     named
           olcBackend=<databasetype>,cn=config  and must have the olcBackendConfig
           objectClass.  <databasetype> should be one of bdb, config, dnssrv, hdb,
           ldap,  ldif, mdb, meta, monitor, ndb, null, passwd, perl, relay, shell,
           or sql.  At present, no backend implements any options of this type, so
           this entry should not be used.


           Database      options      are      set      in      entries      named
           olcDatabase={x}<databasetype>,cn=config    and    must     have     the
           olcAccess: to <what> [ by <who> <access> <control> ]+
                  Grant access (specified by <access>) to a set of entries  and/or
                  attributes  (specified  by  <what>)  by  one  or more requestors
                  (specified by <who>).  If no access controls  are  present,  the
                  default  policy  allows anyone and everyone to read anything but
                  restricts updates to rootdn.   (e.g.,  "olcAccess:  to  *  by  *
                  read").   See  slapd.access(5) and the "OpenLDAP Administrator's
                  Guide" for details.
                  Access controls set in the frontend are appended to  any  access
                  controls  set  on  the  specific  databases.   The  rootdn  of a
                  database can always read and write EVERYTHING in that  database.
                  Extra special care must be taken with the access controls on the
                  config database. Unlike other databases, the default policy  for
                  the  config  database  is  to  only  allow access to the rootdn.
                  Regular users should not have  read  access,  and  write  access
                  should be granted very carefully to privileged administrators.
           olcDefaultSearchBase: <dn>
                  Specify  a default search base to use when client submits a non-
                  base search request with an empty base DN.  Base  scoped  search
                  requests  with  an empty base DN are not affected.  This setting
                  is only allowed in the frontend entry.
           olcExtraAttrs: <attr>
                  Lists what attributes need  to  be  added  to  search  requests.
                  Local  storage backends return the entire entry to the frontend.
                  The  frontend  takes  care  of  only  returning  the   requested
                  attributes  that  are  allowed  by ACLs.  However, features like
                  access checking and so may need specific attributes that are not
                  automatically  returned  by  remote storage backends, like proxy
                  backends and so on.  <attr> is an attribute that is  needed  for
                  internal  purposes  and  thus always needs to be collected, even
                  when not explicitly requested by  clients.   This  attribute  is
           olcPasswordHash: <hash> [<hash>...]
                  This  option  configures  one  or  more  hashes  to  be  used in
                  generation  of  user  passwords  stored  in   the   userPassword
                  attribute  during  processing  of  LDAP Password Modify Extended
                  Operations (RFC 3062).  The <hash> must be one of {SSHA}, {SHA},
                  {SMD5}, {MD5}, {CRYPT}, and {CLEARTEXT}.  The default is {SSHA}.
                  {SHA} and {SSHA} use  the  SHA-1  algorithm  (FIPS  160-1),  the
                  latter with a seed.
                  {MD5}  and  {SMD5}  use the MD5 algorithm (RFC 1321), the latter
                  with a seed.
                  when this option is set TRUE on the frontend, it cannot be reset
                  without restarting the  server,  since  further  writes  to  the
                  config database will be rejected.
           olcRequires: <conditions>
                  Specify  a  set  of  conditions  to require (default none).  The
                  directive  may  be  specified  globally   and/or   per-database;
                  databases    inherit    global   conditions,   so   per-database
                  specifications are additive.  bind requires bind operation prior
                  to  directory  operations.   LDAPv3 requires session to be using
                  LDAP  version  3.   authc  requires  authentication   prior   to
                  directory  operations.   SASL requires SASL authentication prior
                  to directory operations.  strong requires strong  authentication
                  prior  to  directory  operations.   The  strong  keyword  allows
                  protected   "simple"   authentication   as    well    as    SASL
                  authentication.   none  may  be  used  to  require no conditions
                  (useful to clear out globally set conditions within a particular
                  database); it must occur first in the list of conditions.
           olcRestrict: <oplist>
                  Specify  a list of operations that are restricted.  Restrictions
                  on  a  specific  database   override   any   frontend   setting.
                  Operations   can   be   any   of  add,  bind,  compare,  delete,
                  extended[=<OID>], modify, rename, search, or the special pseudo-
                  operations read and write, which respectively summarize read and
                  write operations.  The use of restrict write  is  equivalent  to
                  olcReadOnly:  TRUE  (see above).  The extended keyword allows to
                  indicate the OID of the specific operation to be restricted.
           olcSchemaDN: <dn>
                  Specify the distinguished name for the subschema  subentry  that
                  controls   the   entries   on   this  server.   The  default  is
           olcSecurity: <factors>
                  Specify a set of security strength factors (separated  by  white
                  space)  to  require  (see  olcSaslSecprops's minssf option for a
                  description of security strength factors).  The directive may be
                  specified  globally  and/or per-database.  ssf=<n> specifies the
                  overall security strength factor.  transport=<n>  specifies  the
                  transport  security  strength factor.  tls=<n> specifies the TLS
                  security strength factor.  sasl=<n> specifies the SASL  security
                  strength  factor.  update_ssf=<n> specifies the overall security
                  strength   factor   to   require    for    directory    updates.
                  update_transport=<n>  specifies  the transport security strength
                  factor  to  require  for  directory   updates.    update_tls=<n>
                  specifies  the  TLS  security  strength  factor  to  require for
                  directory updates.  update_sasl=<n> specifies the SASL  security
                  strength    factor    to    require   for   directory   updates.
                  simple_bind=<n> specifies the security strength factor  required
                  for  simple  username/password  authentication.   Note  that the
                  transport  factor  is  measure  of  security  provided  by   the
                  Specify  a  list  of  multi-valued  attributes whose values will
                  always be maintained in sorted order.  Using  this  option  will
                  allow   Modify,   Compare,   and  filter  evaluations  on  these
                  attributes to be performed more efficiently. The resulting  sort
                  order  depends  on the attributes' syntax and matching rules and
                  may not correspond to lexical order or  any  other  recognizable
                  order.  This setting is only allowed in the frontend entry.
           olcTimeLimit: {<integer>|unlimited}
           olcTimeLimit: time[.{soft|hard}]=<integer> [...]
                  Specify  the maximum number of seconds (in real time) slapd will
                  spend answering a search request.  The  default  time  limit  is
                  3600.   Use  unlimited  to specify no limits.  The second format
                  allows a fine grain setting of the time limits.  Extra args  can
                  be  added  in  the  same  value  or  as  additional values.  See
                  olcLimits for an explanation of the different flags.


           Options in this section only apply to the specific database  for  which
           they  are defined.  They are supported by every type of backend. All of
           the Global Database Options may also be used here.
           olcAddContentAcl: TRUE | FALSE
                  Controls whether Add operations will perform ACL checks  on  the
                  content  of the entry being added. This check is off by default.
                  See the slapd.access(5) manual page  for  more  details  on  ACL
                  requirements for Add operations.
           olcHidden: TRUE | FALSE
                  Controls  whether the database will be used to answer queries. A
                  database that is hidden will never be  selected  to  answer  any
                  queries,  and  any  suffix  configured  on  the database will be
                  ignored  in  checks  for  conflicts  with  other  databases.  By
                  default, olcHidden is FALSE.
           olcLastMod: TRUE | FALSE
                  Controls   whether   slapd   will   automatically  maintain  the
                  modifiersName,      modifyTimestamp,      creatorsName,      and
                  createTimestamp  attributes  for  entries.  It also controls the
                  entryCSN and entryUUID  attributes,  which  are  needed  by  the
                  syncrepl provider. By default, olcLastMod is TRUE.
           olcLimits: <selector> <limit> [<limit> [...]]
                  Specify  time and size limits based on the operation's initiator
                  or base DN.  The argument <selector> can be any of
                         anonymous    |    users    |    [<dnspec>=]<pattern>    |
                  exact match; with onelevel, to  require  exactly  one  level  of
                  depth  match;  with  subtree, to allow any level of depth match,
                  including the exact match; with children, to allow any level  of
                  depth  match,  not  including  the exact match; regex explicitly
                  requires the  (default)  match  based  on  POSIX  (''extended'')
                  regular  expression pattern.  Finally, anonymous matches unbound
                  operations; the pattern field is ignored.  The same behavior  is
                  obtained  by  using the anonymous form of the <selector> clause.
                  The  term  group,  with  the   optional   objectClass   oc   and
                  attributeType  at  fields,  followed by pattern, sets the limits
                  for any DN listed in the values of  the  at  attribute  (default
                  member) of the oc group objectClass (default groupOfNames) whose
                  DN exactly matches pattern.
                  The currently supported limits are size and time.
                  The syntax  for  time  limits  is  time[.{soft|hard}]=<integer>,
                  where  integer  is  the  number  of  seconds  slapd  will  spend
                  answering a search request.  If  no  time  limit  is  explicitly
                  requested  by  the  client,  the  soft  limit  is  used;  if the
                  requested time limit exceeds the hard limit, the  value  of  the
                  limit  is used instead.  If the hard limit is set to the keyword
                  soft, the soft limit is used in either case; if it is set to the
                  keyword unlimited, no hard limit is enforced.  Explicit requests
                  for time limits smaller or equal to the hard limit are  honored.
                  If  no limit specifier is set, the value is assigned to the soft
                  limit, and the hard limit  is  set  to  soft,  to  preserve  the
                  original behavior.
                  The        syntax        for        size        limits        is
                  size[.{soft|hard|unchecked}]=<integer>,  where  integer  is  the
                  maximum  number  of entries slapd will return answering a search
                  request.  If no  size  limit  is  explicitly  requested  by  the
                  client,  the  soft  limit  is  used; if the requested size limit
                  exceeds the hard limit, the value of the limit is used  instead.
                  If  the hard limit is set to the keyword soft, the soft limit is
                  used in either case; if it is set to the keyword  unlimited,  no
                  hard  limit  is  enforced.   Explicit  requests  for size limits
                  smaller or equal to the hard limit are honored.   The  unchecked
                  specifier  sets  a  limit  on  the number of candidates a search
                  request is allowed to examine.  The rationale behind it is  that
                  searches for non-properly indexed attributes may result in large
                  sets of candidates,  which  must  be  examined  by  slapd(8)  to
                  determine  whether  they  match  the  search filter or not.  The
                  unchecked limit provides a means to drop such operations  before
                  they  are  even  started.  If the selected candidates exceed the
                  unchecked  limit,  the  search  will  abort  with  Unwilling  to
                  perform.   If  it  is  set to the keyword unlimited, no limit is
                  applied (the default).  If it is set to disable, the  search  is
                  not  even performed; this can be used to disallow searches for a
                  specific set of users.  If no limit specifier is set, the  value
                  is  assigned  to  the  soft  limit, and the hard limit is set to
                  noEstimate inhibits the server from returning an estimate of the
                  total  number  of  entries  that  might  be  returned (note: the
                  current implementation  does  not  return  any  estimate).   The
                  keyword  unlimited  indicates  that  no  limit is applied to the
                  pagedResults     control     page     size.      The      syntax
                  size.prtotal={<integer>|unlimited|disabled}   allows  to  set  a
                  limit on the total number of entries that a pagedResults control
                  allows to return.  By default it is set to the hard limit.  When
                  set, integer is the max number of entries that the whole  search
                  with  pagedResults  control  can return.  Use unlimited to allow
                  unlimited number of entries to be returned, e.g.  to  allow  the
                  use  of  the  pagedResults control as a means to circumvent size
                  limitations on regular searches; the keyword  disabled  disables
                  the  control,  i.e. no paged results can be returned.  Note that
                  the total number  of  entries  returned  when  the  pagedResults
                  control  is  requested  cannot  exceed  the  hard  size limit of
                  regular searches unless extended by the prtotal switch.
           olcMaxDerefDepth: <depth>
                  Specifies the maximum number  of  aliases  to  dereference  when
                  trying  to resolve an entry, used to avoid infinite alias loops.
                  The default is 15.
           olcMirrorMode: TRUE | FALSE
                  This option puts a replica database into "mirror" mode.   Update
                  operations  will  be  accepted  from  any  user,  not  just  the
                  updatedn.  The database must already be configured  as  syncrepl
                  consumer  before  this  keyword  may  be  set.   This  mode also
                  requires  a  olcServerID  (see  above)  to  be  configured.   By
                  default, this setting is FALSE.
           olcPlugin: <plugin_type> <lib_path> <init_function> [<arguments>]
                  Configure  a  SLAPI  plugin. See the slapd.plugin(5) manpage for
                  more details.
           olcRootDN: <dn>
                  Specify the distinguished name that is  not  subject  to  access
                  control  or  administrative limit restrictions for operations on
                  this database.  This DN may or may not  be  associated  with  an
                  entry.   An empty root DN (the default) specifies no root access
                  is to be granted.  It is recommended that  the  rootdn  only  be
                  specified  when  needed  (such  as  when  initially populating a
                  database).  If the rootdn is within a namingContext (suffix)  of
                  the  database, a simple bind password may also be provided using
                  the olcRootPW directive. Note that the rootdn is  always  needed
                  when  using  syncrepl.   The olcRootDN of the cn=config database
                  defaults to cn=config itself.
           olcRootPW: <password>
                  Specify a password (or hash of the  password)  for  the  rootdn.
                  The  password  can  only  be  set  if  the  rootdn is within the
                  namingContext (suffix) of the database.  This option accepts all
                  subordinate as well. All of  the  databases  associated  with  a
                  single namingContext should have identical rootdns.  Behavior of
                  other  LDAP  operations  is  unaffected  by  this  setting.   In
                  particular,  it  is  not  possible to use moddn to move an entry
                  from  one  subordinate  to  another   subordinate   within   the
                  If  the  optional advertise flag is supplied, the naming context
                  of this database is advertised in the root DSE. The  default  is
                  to hide this database context, so that only the superior context
                  is visible.
                  If the slap tools slapcat(8), slapadd(8),  or  slapindex(8)  are
                  used  on  the  superior  database,  any  glued subordinates that
                  support these tools are opened as well.
                  Databases that are glued together should usually  be  configured
                  with the same indices (assuming they support indexing), even for
                  attributes that only  exist  in  some  of  these  databases.  In
                  general,  all  of  the  glued  databases should be configured as
                  similarly as possible,  since  the  intent  is  to  provide  the
                  appearance of a single directory.
                  Note   that   the   subordinate   functionality  is  implemented
                  internally by the glue overlay and as  such  its  behavior  will
                  interact  with  other  overlays  in  use.  By  default, the glue
                  overlay is automatically configured as the last overlay  on  the
                  superior   database.   Its  position  on  the  database  can  be
                  explicitly configured by setting an overlay  glue  directive  at
                  the  desired  position. This explicit configuration is necessary
                  e.g.  when using the syncprov overlay,  which  needs  to  follow
                  glue in order to work over all of the glued databases. E.g.
                       dn: olcDatabase={1}bdb,cn=config

                  Specify  the  DN  suffix  of queries that will be passed to this
                  backend database.  Multiple suffix lines can  be  given  and  at
                  least one is required for each database definition.
                  If  the  suffix of one database is "inside" that of another, the
                  database  with  the  inner  suffix  must  come  first   in   the
                  configuration  file.   You  may also want to glue such databases
                  together with the olcSubordinate attribute.

                  Specify  the  current database as a replica which is kept up-to-
                  date  with  the  master  content  by  establishing  the  current
                  slapd(8)  as  a  replication  consumer  site  running a syncrepl
                  replication engine.  The replica content is kept synchronized to
                  the  master  content  using  the  LDAP  Content  Synchronization
                  protocol. Refer to  the  "OpenLDAP  Administrator's  Guide"  for
                  detailed  information on setting up a replicated slapd directory
                  service using the syncrepl replication engine.
                  rid  identifies  the  current  syncrepl  directive  within   the
                  replication  consumer site.  It is a non-negative integer having
                  no more than three decimal digits.
                  provider specifies the replication provider site containing  the
                  master  content  as  an  LDAP  URI.  If <port> is not given, the
                  standard LDAP port number (389 or 636) is used.
                  The content of the syncrepl replica is defined  using  a  search
                  specification  as  its  result set. The consumer slapd will send
                  search requests to the provider slapd according  to  the  search
                  specification.  The  search  specification  includes searchbase,
                  scope,  filter,  attrs,  attrsonly,  sizelimit,  and   timelimit
                  parameters  as  in  the normal search specification. The exattrs
                  option may also be used to specify  attributes  that  should  be
                  omitted  from  incoming entries.  The scope defaults to sub, the
                  filter defaults to (objectclass=*),  and  there  is  no  default
                  searchbase.  The attrs list defaults to "*,+" to return all user
                  and operational attributes, and attrsonly and exattrs are  unset
                  by default.  The sizelimit and timelimit only accept "unlimited"
                  and positive integers, and both default to  "unlimited".   Note,
                  however,  that  any  provider-side  limits  for  the replication
                  identity will be enforced by  the  provider  regardless  of  the
                  limits  requested by the LDAP Content Synchronization operation,
                  much like for any other search operation.
                  The LDAP Content  Synchronization  protocol  has  two  operation
                  types.   In  the refreshOnly operation, the next synchronization
                  search operation is periodically rescheduled at an interval time
                  (specified  by  interval parameter; 1 day by default) after each
                  synchronization operation finishes.   In  the  refreshAndPersist
                  operation,  a  synchronization  search remains persistent in the
                  provider slapd.  Further updates  to  the  master  replica  will
                  The network-timeout parameter sets how long  the  consumer  will
                  wait  to  establish a network connection to the provider. Once a
                  connection is established, the timeout parameter determines  how
                  long  the  consumer  will  wait  for the initial Bind request to
                  complete.  The  defaults  for   these   parameters   come   from
                  A   bindmethod   of  simple  requires  the  options  binddn  and
                  credentials and should  only  be  used  when  adequate  security
                  services (e.g. TLS or IPSEC) are in place.  A bindmethod of sasl
                  requires the option saslmech.  Depending on  the  mechanism,  an
                  authentication  identity  and/or  credentials  can  be specified
                  using authcid and credentials.  The  authzid  parameter  may  be
                  used  to  specify  an authorization identity.  Specific security
                  properties (as with the sasl-secprops keyword above) for a  SASL
                  bind  can  be  set  with the secprops option. A non default SASL
                  realm can be set with the realm  option.   The  provider,  other
                  than allow authentication of the syncrepl identity, should grant
                  that identity appropriate access privileges to the data that  is
                  being  replicated  (access  directive), and appropriate time and
                  size limits (limits directive).
                  The keepalive parameter sets the values  of  idle,  probes,  and
                  interval  used  to  check whether a socket is alive; idle is the
                  number of seconds a connection needs to remain idle  before  TCP
                  starts sending keepalive probes; probes is the maximum number of
                  keepalive probes TCP should send before dropping the connection;
                  interval  is  interval  in  seconds between individual keepalive
                  probes.  Only some systems support the  customization  of  these
                  values;  the  keepalive  parameter  is  ignored  otherwise,  and
                  system-wide settings are used.
                  The starttls parameter specifies use of  the  StartTLS  extended
                  operation  to  establish  a  TLS  session  before Binding to the
                  provider. If the critical argument is supplied, the session will
                  be aborted if the StartTLS request fails. Otherwise the syncrepl
                  session continues without TLS. The tls_reqcert setting  defaults
                  to  "demand"  and  the other TLS settings default to the same as
                  the main slapd TLS settings.
                  The suffixmassage parameter allows the consumer to pull  entries
                  from  a  remote directory whose DN suffix differs from the local
                  directory. The portion of the remote entries' DNs  that  matches
                  the searchbase will be replaced with the suffixmassage DN.
                  Rather  than  replicating  whole entries, the consumer can query
                  logs of data modifications. This mode of operation  is  referred
                  to  as  delta syncrepl. In addition to the above parameters, the
                  logbase and logfilter parameters must be set  appropriately  for
                  the log that will be used. The syncdata parameter must be set to
                  either "accesslog" if the log conforms to the slapo-accesslog(5)
                  specified, each url is provided.


           Each  database  may  allow  specific  configuration  options;  they are
           documented  separately  in  the  backends'  manual   pages.   See   the
           slapd.backends(5) manual page for an overview of available backends.


           An  overlay  is  a piece of code that intercepts database operations in
           order to extend or change them. Overlays are pushed onto a  stack  over
           the  database,  and so they will execute in the reverse of the order in
           which they were configured and the database itself will receive control
           last of all.
           Overlays  must  be  configured as child entries of a specific database.
           The entry's RDN must be of the form olcOverlay={x}<overlaytype> and the
           entry  must  have the olcOverlayConfig objectClass. Normally the config
           engine generates the "{x}" index in the RDN automatically, so it can be
           omitted when initially loading these entries.
