I am trying to configure and OpenLDAP server on Ubuntu 10.04 to use a mysql database as its datasource. I am following the guides about the back-sql and realize that in order to map mysql schema with ldap schme i need to use the metadata mapping tables.
ldap_oc_mappings, ldap_attr_mappings ldap_entries, ldap_entry_objclasses and ldap_referrals
However most samples indicates database and ldap server being on the same location. Is it possible to create and use the mapping tables in a different database from the datasource i want to map with OpenLDAP? (in a different host database server e.g. in the LDAP server host)
