I am trying to host an LDAP service that can help proxy between multiple LDAP servers. An example found here: http://blog.sejo.be/2010/01/8/openldap-en-3-ad-servers/
I thought I would give OpenLDAP a shot since I heard about it's "meta" database.
So, I installed onto a example unbuntu server using
apt-get install slapd
However, I am having trouble just configuring slapd with meta as a database.
I have a very basic Sample.conf file
database meta suffix "dc=Sample,dc=com" uri "ldap://localhost:6666/CN=Users,CN=Sample35" suffixmassage "CN=Users,CN=Sample35" "dc=bar,dc=org" uri "ldap://localhost:5555/CN=Users,CN=Sample10" suffixmassage "CN=Users,CN=Sample10" "o=Foo,c=US"
When running slaptest -f sample.conf I get
Unrecognized database type (meta) 50a30c0d sample.conf: line 1: <database> failed init (meta) slaptest: bad configuration file!
Makes me think that openldap was compiled without the meta database/modules? Googling around, I haven't found much on how to resolve this :(
If it is a missing module, how do I compile/install it within Ubuntu? Do I need to manually download the source and compile it manually?
