Name

slapd−null — Null backend to slapd

Synopsis

ETCDIR/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 other than as the rootdn fail unless the database option bind on is given.

- The slapadd(8) and slapcat(8) tools are equally exciting.

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 <on/off>

Allow binds as any DN in this backend_zsingle_quotesz_s suffix, with any password. The default is off.

dosearch <on/off>

If enabled, a single entry will be returned on all search requests. The entry_zsingle_quotesz_s DN will be the same as the database suffix. The default is off.

EXAMPLE

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

database null
suffix   cn=Nothing
bind     on

ACCESS CONTROL

The null backend does not honor any of the access control semantics described in slapd.access(5).
