slapo-refint - Referential Integrity overlay to slapd
The Referential Integrity overlay can be used with a backend database such as slapd-bdb(5) to maintain the cohesiveness of a schema which utilizes reference attributes.
Integrity is maintained by updating database records which contain the named attributes to match the results of a modrdn or delete operation. For example, if the integrity attribute were configured as manager, deletion of the record "uid=robert,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" would trigger a search for all other records which have a manager attribute containing that DN. Entries matching that search would have their manager attribute removed. Or, renaming the same record into "uid=george,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" would trigger a search for all other records which have a manager attribute containing that DN. Entries matching that search would have their manager attribute deleted and replaced by the new DN.
rootdn must be set for the database. refint runs as the rootdn to gain access to make its updates. rootpw is not needed.
These slapd.conf options apply to the Referential Integrity overlay. They should appear after the overlay directive.
