Subject Re: 1.1-beta-3 LDAP
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2007 14:13:57 GMT
redback requires a guest to exist for authorization purposes..

however the guest doesn't need to have any roles assigned to it.

I would recommend just pointing the guest as some utility user in ldap and
not give it any additional privileges..

we are looking at removing this guest user requirement in later version of
redback, but that will be a while.
