When one's Google Foo fails, turn to an appropriate list.
I would like to get rid of these warnings (rootdn is always granted
unlimited privileges). First, it's annoying that our cron always spits
back an email. Second, one assumes that where there is a warning, there
might be something that should be done differently. I've tried searching,
but it seems this warning always comes up in conjunction with some other
error that someone is concerned about. This particular warning is always
ignored in the discussion of the error of concern as far as I have been
able to find.
5b2472a5 /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.conf: line 170: rootdn is
always granted unlimited privileges.
One of the lovely things about open source software is, well, that the
source is open. A 2 second grep discovers that this messages comes from
"aclparse.c". I.e., the portion of the code responsible for parsing ACLs.
Thus it would appear that you have ACLs referencing the rootdn (which as
noted in slapd.access(5) is not subject to ACLs).
Hope that helps!
