After skimming my OpenLDAP email and seeing a few snide comments
about OpenLDAP and/or documentation, I felt compelled to post a
thank-you to all the folks working on OpenLDAP.
Our LDAP needs have been uber-simple until recently but OpenLDAP has
been rock solid and just worked without complaint, failures, or
I recently had to setup a fancier set of LDAP servers for doing
authentication/authorization for giant clusters of servers, so for the
first time I found myself needing other overlays like accesslog and
ppolicy and although I had to spend a bit of time RTFM'ing (oh no, not
that! - grin) I found them like my previous experience with OpenLDAP -
they just worked.
And other than needing to start slapd with a larger max number of
File descriptors to handle thousands of clients all suddenly connecting
and doing queries simultaneously (slaps forehead - I shoulda expected
this), we've had no problems.
So to everyone who's spent late nights 'n weekends digging through
the source code looking for bugs, or adding new overlays, thanks. It's
