I am only modestly skilled at ldap and there is something that isn't
clear to me.
for qualification (RHEL v5)
# rpm -q postfix
virtualAliases_search_base = ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
virtualAliases_query_filter = (|(uid=%u)(mail=%s)(mailLocalAddress=%s))
virtualAliases_result_attribute = mail
virtualAliases_search_scope = one
and this works well if e-mail addresses are either in mail or
I am getting tired of maintaining group distribution lists
in /etc/aliases and would like to maintain them in LDAP but if I create
ou=Mail Groups,dc=example,dc=com then I am SOL because of my
search_base. I also want to keep 'one' search instead of 'sub' search
because there are many address books (Users each have a private address
book under their DN).
I am presuming that only one search base is allowed. I have read
but that discusses 'ldapgroup' ou which of course doesn't exist in
openldap-2.3.x but groupOfUniqueNames does exist and I suppose that
would work but must I keep it inside of ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
because that is the only search base that is going to work for me?
