Subject [jira] Commented: (DIREVE-66) Automagically create ou=users under system
Date Sun, 31 Oct 2004 07:33:32 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-66?page=comments#action_54842 ]
     
Alex Karasulu commented on DIREVE-66:
-------------------------------------

It's going to be highly likely that we're going to need several things created and not just
this ou=users.  I would rather maintain an LDIF file for this stuff rather than hard code
it into the initial context factory.  This way we can expand the ou=system region of server
maintaining entries as LDIF entries.

> We need to start storing regular users as well as many other things like groups under
the ou=system context.  Let's start first by managing users under ou=users,ou=system.  This
container should automatically get created on the first db-creating bootstrap.  The admin
user at uid=admin,ou=system is very special.  This entry was not placed under ou=users,ou=system
on purpose.  Other administrative users can exist as ou=users subordinates however this user
is not there for security reasons.  First its clear what its for and secondly we don't want
someone searching for it under ou=users.  
> If we really want to an alias can be created in uid=admin,ou=users,ou=system to point
to uid=admin,ou=system.  However I recommend against this.
