Subject [Documentation] Partition Concept - Sound OK?
Date Sat, 31 Mar 2007 23:21:40 GMT
Does this sound ok?

(There's a little HTML in here...)

             The X500 Partition concept is best illustrated
             through examples.
             <br/>
             <br/>
             The following list of DNs must be partitions.
             <ul>
             <li>DN: ou=system</li>
             <li>DN: ou=com</li>
             <li>DN: ou=org</li>
             </ul>
             The reason for this is that these Naming Contexts
             contain a single entry only.
             <br/>
             <br/>
             If a DN is composed of multiple entries, like this:
			<br/>
             <br/>
             DN: cn=accounts, ou=users, ou=system
			<br/>
             <br/>
             then <i>ou=users, ou=system</i> is a partition if the
directory service
             does not allow access to the <i>cn=users</i>
             entry.
             <br/>
             <br/>
             If the the directory service allows access to the
             <i>cn=users</i> entry, then the partition is <i>ou=system</i>.
	    <br/>
             <br/>
             Thus a partition is the segment of a DN where the
             directory service denies access to the left most
             entry.

Thanks,
- Ole
