#50555 Referral options are missing in man page and usage output
Opened 10 months ago by mmuehlfeldrh. Modified 4 months ago

Issue Description

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_directory_server/10/html/administration_guide/configuring_directory_databases-using_referrals#Using_Referrals-Starting_the_Server_in_Referral_Mode describes how to start the server in referral mode.

However, the following options are missing in the ns-slapd(8) man page:
-r referral_url
and also in the usage output of "ns-slapd -V".

Package Version and Platform


Steps to reproduce

  1. man ns-slapd
  2. ns-slapd -V
    usage: ns-slapd -D configdir [-d debuglevel] [-i pidlogfile] [-v] [-V]

Actual results

"refer" and "-r referral_url" are not documented neither in the ns-slapd(8) man page nor in "ns-slapd -V".

Expected results

The man page and the help option should describe the missing options.

Additional information:

Simon Pichugin: It is part of 'main.c' file and looks like it is used
