Description

Some LDAP clients and/or legacy environments requires anonymous bind to the LDAP accounts database.

Enable (restricted) access to anonymous binds too.

WARNING
This is not easily reversible!

This command opens the LDAP to the world, (except password fields):

 # perl -MNethServer::Directory -e '
$l = NethServer::Directory->new(); 
$l->enforceAccessDirective("by anonymous read", "*");
'
