9.6. Null

9.6.1. Overview

The Null backend to slapd(8) is surely the most useful part of slapd:

  • Searches return success but no entries.
  • Compares return compareFalse.
  • Updates return success (unless readonly is on) but do nothing.
  • Binds other than as the rootdn fail unless the database option "bind on" is given.
  • The slapadd(8) and slapcat(8) tools are equally exciting.

Inspired by the /dev/null device.
