Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-74) empty DN does not work
Date Sun, 01 Apr 2007 22:50:32 GMT


Leif Johansson commented on DIRSTUDIO-74:

Yes you can - thats what you have subentries for. Granted they were never defined for LDAP
but in the case of the root dse and naming contexts (which both are subentries in X.500) they
sort-of exist. 

This is getting away from the basic point: empty DNs are valid and don't just implicitly refer
to the root dse. All directory servers I've come across support them as do most if not all
directory clients (including all administrative clients) with the exception of ldap studio.

> 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.
