Date Sun, 01 Apr 2007 13:46:32 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-74:

More infos :

>From RFC 2251, chapter 3.2 :
"The largest collection of entries, starting at an entry that is
   mastered by a particular server, and including all its subordinates
   and their subordinates, down to the entries which are mastered by
   different servers, is termed a naming context.  *The root of the DIT
   is a DSA-specific Entry (DSE) and not part of any naming context:
   each server has different attribute values in the root DSE*. "

>From RFC 4512, chapter 5.1 :
"An LDAP server SHALL provide information about itself and other
   information that is specific to each server.  This is represented as
   a group of attributes located in *the root DSE, which is named with
   the DN with zero RDNs (whose [RFC 4514] representation is as the
   zero-length string).*"

> 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.
