Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSTUDIO-74) empty DN does not work
Date Sun, 01 Apr 2007 17:51:32 GMT


Stefan Seelmann updated DIRSTUDIO-74:

      Component/s: ldapstudio-browser
    Fix Version/s: 0.8.0
         Assignee: Stefan Seelmann

Some more information from RFC 4512:
5.1.2. 'namingContexts'
   The 'namingContexts' attribute lists the context prefixes of the
   naming contexts the server masters or shadows (in part or in whole).
   If the server is a first-level DSA [X.501], it should list (in
   addition) an empty string (indicating the root of the DIT).  If the
   server does not master or shadow any information (e.g., it is an LDAP
   gateway to a public X.500 directory) this attribute will be absent.
   If the server believes it masters or shadows the entire directory,
   the attribute will have a single value, and that value will be the
   empty string (indicating the root of the DIT).

I checked it with Novell's eDirectory, it returns an empty DN in the namingContexts attribute
of the rootDSE. LS doesn't handle that case atm. Additionally LS should accept the empty DN
as connection's base DN and as search base.

> The empty DN is a perfectly valid DN for a directory server. When getting the DN from
the root DSE ldap studio displays an error if the root dn is empty. Also the empty dn can't
be set manually.
