I have been working with implementing LDAP in our servers. We are using SSSD instead of nscd/nslcd to communicate with the LDAP server.
One of the options in SSSD is enumeration. Enabling it solved an issue we were having while implementing the LDAP-client on RHEL.
- Can somebody explain more clearly what LDAP enumeration means?
- How does enabling/disabling LDAP enumeration affect the environment?
- Is this an LDAP-specific or a SSSD-specific term?
I was unable to find much information around this feature, so hopefully this Serverfault question can help other people as well.
