<title>Kolab Daemon</title>
+ The Kolab daemon is a multi-process daemon that synchronizes the authentication and authorization database mutations with various aspects of a Kolab Groupware deployment.
+ </para>
+ <para>
+ Using the <literal>[ldap]</literal> <literal>domain_*</literal> settings, (domain_base_dn, domain_search_filter, domain_search_scope, domain_name_attribute, ...), the Kolab daemon determines the number of authentication databases for which to render service, as each domain name space may require either a switch in authn/authz technology, or different bind credentials.
+ </para>
+ <note>
+ This functionality is currently limited to LDAP only.
+ </note>
+ <para>
+ To illustrate, one of its responsibilities is to make sure adding a new user is propagated in the form of a new mailbox.
+ </para>
+ <para>
+ The master process determines the number of domain name spaces served from different authentication and authorization sources.
+ </para>
+ <para>
+ For LDAP based deployments, this includes multiple domain name spaces served with different root dns.
+ </para>
+ <para>
+ It uses /etc/kolab/kolab.conf, section ldap, keys domain_base_dn, domain_rootdn_attribute, domain_filter, domain_name_attribute.
