Ldap: Two suffixes should use the same database (nsslapd-backend)

Hi,

can anyone help me out in troubleshooting my problem.

i m facing difficulty in configuring ldap server with two suffixes.

step 1: creating two suffixes in a single server.
dc=suffix1,dc=com-----OK
dc=suffix2,dc=com----OK

step2: i m assigning

nsslapd-backend: marketing
for suffix1 ---- OK


step3: i want suffix2 also to use the same backend database. ----- problem

step 4: when i try to assign the same

nsslapd-backend: marketing

to suffix2 also i m getting error
"DSA unwilling to perform"


can any one please tell me whether it is possible to make two diferrent sufffixes to use the same backend.

Thanks in advance.

No, the two suffixes need two backends. You could create a dc=com suffix mapped to a single backend and then create dc=suffix1 and dc=suffix2 entries underneath that dc=com parent entry. This would have some drawbacks, for example, a search on the root DSE to discover available naming contexts would show only dc=com rather than dc=suffix1,dc=com and dc=suffix2,dc=com.
