Setting advanced LDAP options

LDAP referrals are not used by the LDAP server by default.

To configure the server to follow LDAP referrals, use the following command:

vyatta@vyatta# set resources service-users ldap example.com follow-referrals

LDAP service-user management supports two LDAP schema standards: RFC2307 and RFC2307bis. The main difference between the two standards is how the member attribute of groups is stored.

According to RFC2307, the members of a group are stored in the LDAP attribute memberuid. According to RFC2307bis, the members of a group are stored in member. These settings depend on the LDAP schema that is used on the LDAP server.

To set the RFC2307bis schema standard as the default, use the following command:

vyatta@vyatta# set resources service-users ldap example.com schema rfc2307bis
