Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-74) empty DN does not work
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2007 08:15:32 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-74:

I just wanted to add somethiong moe interesting, and related to the issue :

1) This is not because ADS does not accept empty DN except for rootDSE that LdapStudio should
not provide such a DN : there are other Ldap server out there ;)
2) A search operation with an empty DN should always be accepted, an sent to the server
3) A modify operation applied on a empty DN should be sent to the server, this is the server
responsaibilty to accept it or not
4) A delete operation should be sent to the server, with the same behavior
5) a create operation should be sent to the server, with the same behavior.

In other words, from the LdapStudio point of view, empty DN *musr* be seen as legitimate.

Any discussion about the legitimity of an empty DN would deserve another thread on

(and I must admit that I started the discussion, so my bad :)

> 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.
